Cashmere Rd/Penruddock Rise
One cordon on the perimeter of the Port Hills fire has

The cordon at the corner of
Cashmere Road and Penruddock Rise has now been lifted and
these residents only are able to return to their properties.
Access to the area is only available from the east.

Cordons will be lifted only where it is safe to do so.
We hope to announce the lifting of some further cordons
early this afternoon.
