Fire destroys Christchurch flat

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 26/07/2016

Firefighters are battling to keep a large blaze that's gutted a Christchurch flat from spreading to neighbouring properties.

Four crews were called out to the fire on Rutherford Street in Woolston at about 6am on Wednesday.

A Fire Service spokeswoman said the flat where the blaze had started was engulfed by the time emergency services arrived and they were trying to keep it from destroying connected homes.

Ambulances are at the scene, although no injuries have yet been reported.
