Large fire damages Lyttelton home

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 30/05/2016

A two-storey home has been badly damaged by fire at Lyttelton Harbour near Christchurch.

Fire crews were called to the property just after 1pm on Monday after several people reported seeing smoke bellowing from the hillside.

It took firefighters about two hours to put out the blaze which was spotted as far away as Diamond Harbour, a Fire Service spokeswoman says.

They said it was too early to say what caused the fire.

No one was injured.
