Total fire ban coming as conditions in Canterbury pose extreme fire danger

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

A total fire ban will hit Canterbury about a month earlier than last year, as tinder dry conditions leave firefighters on edge.

From 12am on Saturday, a prohibited fire season will be in place in the Christchurch, Hurunui, Selwyn and Waimakariri districts.

All open air fires will be prohibited but gas-operated appliances, barbecues, wood-fire pizza ovens, hāngi and umu less than 2 metres in size would be allowed.
