A fire in scrub at Dublin Bay near Wanaka in Central Otago is being contained.

Four fire engines, two water tankers and two helicopters are being used to fight the fire on Friday afternoon, a Fire Service spokesman says.

The fire is contained, he says.

The fire is in an area with lifestyle blocks and people have been evacuated from two properties as a precaution.

Celebrity cook Annabel Langbein told the Otago Daily Times the fire was across the bay from her house and she could see huge fireballs.
