A large fire has extensively damaged a shed and scrub in Canterbury. 

A Fire Service spokesman said they were called to a shed and scrub fire in Schoolhouse Rd, Kaikoura, about 7:30pm yesterday.

He said there were about four to five separate fires on the rural property being fanned by the wind.

Firefighters from Kaikoura, Blenheim, Awatere Valley, Ward and Cheviot all responded.

They brought the fire under control within a couple of hours.

No-one was injured, but the shed was extensively damaged.

It is not suspicious.
