Firefighters are preparing for the possibility of a massive wildfire after seven fires were deliberately lit at a Christchurch forest in less than a month.
The fires have left some nearby residents concerned their properties may come under threat if a large blaze does take hold in Bottle Lake Forest.
The latest fire happened near Landfill Ave, Parklands, about 5.15pm on Monday.
Senior fire risk management officer Bruce Irvine said it was not yet known whether one person or a group were responsible for lighting the fires.
The fires had all been dealt with easily so far, but there was a real risk a blaze could become out of control and spread over kilometres as the fire risk increased heading into summer.
