Wellington fire ban

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Hey Neighbourly folk, remember there is a fire ban on.
It includes Kapiti Coast, Porirua, Wellington City and the Hutt Valley. Principal Rural Fire Officer Craig Cottrill says this means anyone wanting to light an outdoor fire will need to apply for a permit and follow the conditions listed on their permit.
"The ground is getting drier and fire danger has increased,” he says.
“The dry vegetation acts as fuel for a wildfire, meaning if a wildfire did start it could spread very quickly. We’ve seen this with a few vegetation fires in the area recently, including one in Makara last month where firefighters and helicopters worked hard over two days to put it out.”
