An Auckland councillor says burning a maunga is like setting an ancestor on fire after fireworks led to a chaotic night across the country, including two large blazes in Auckland.
Scrub fires broke out on Tuesday night – Guy Fawkes – on Maungarei / Mt Wellington and Maungawhau / Mt Eden.
The flames, first reported about 10pm, were visible from surrounding suburbs and plumes of smoke billowed low across the city. By midnight, both fires were largely under control, Fire and Emergency NZ said.
