Blaze at disused petrol station
Firefighters are battling a blaze at a disused petrol station near Templeton, south of Christchurch.
A Fire Service spokesman said the fire was at the old Mobil site on Maddisons Rd, near Kirk Rd
He said it was unclear what the building was used for.
There were concerns asbestos was in the roof of the building so the hazardous materials unit was on site, the spokesman said.
There are no reports of injuries or anyone being inside the building at the time.
The spokesman said it was too early to say what the likely cause was.
