UPDATE 8.30am - FIRE AT LAKE OHAU
There has been little fire activity overnight.
We have cooler and good conditions for firefighting today.
Today ground crews and heavy machinery working to manage hot spots and further secure and control the fire perimeter. This means creating a zone 10m from the perimeter with no hot spots.
We will continue working with Waitaki District Council to allow managed access for residents who are yet to get this.
