Fire at Christchurch's Antonio Hall deemed suspicious

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

A major fire at a heritage-listed Christchurch mansion that had been sitting derelict for years has been deemed suspicious.

Firefighters spent hours trying to save Antonio Hall, on Riccarton Rd, after the fire erupted about 5.20pm on Friday.

At its peak, more than 50 firefighters were involved in putting out the "significant" blaze, and about 50 neighbouring properties were evacuated for several hours. Residents were able to return home about 8.30pm and all road closures had since been lifted.
