Stables at the home of the Canterbury A&P Show have been badly damaged by a suspicious fire.

Firefighters were called to the scene of the blaze at the Canterbury Agricultural Park, Curletts Rd about 11.30pm, yesterday.

On arrival, they found two stables on fire.

"It seems like they were reasonably well damaged," A Fire Service spokesman said. 

Police were called because the fire was deemed suspicious, the spokesman said. Investigators would be at the scene this morning.

The blaze was one of two suspicious fires in Christchurch overnight.

A garage in Bishop St, St Albans was destroyed by fire about 4.40am, today.

Investigators would visit the scene this morning, the spokesman said.

Is the mayor correct to put libraries, pools and community facilities ahead of the Town Hall?

Absolutely, they're far more important

I think funds should be split between those facilities and the town hall

No, the Town Hall should be rebuilt first

Just demolish the Town Hall completely instead of rebuilding
