Helicopters fight fire inland of Gisborne

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 26/12/2016

Two helicopters are being used to fight a fire in grass and bush inland from Gisborne.

Emergency services were called to the fire in farmland off State Highway 2 at Te Karaka about 1pm on Boxing Day.

The area is remote and difficult to access so two helicopters were used to fight the blaze as well as ground crews.

The latest report is that two crews have been stood down, a Fire Service spokesman says.

No properties or people are in danger.
