A vegetation fire in Christchurch took firefighters more than two hours to extinguish.
A Fire Service spokesman said the blaze on the stock banks, near Haul Rd, in McLeans Island, was reported at 1pm.
"It was 20 metres by 20 metres of smouldering pine nettles," he said.
Two fire trucks, one from Harewood and another from West Melton attended.
