Fire crews in Christchurch are battling a substantial fire on the hillside in the Hillsborough area.
Appliances from across Christchurch, including Governors Bay have been called in to help. A Christchurch City command unit has also been set up on Port Hills Road.
A Port Hills resident near the scene of this evening's scrub fire says the blaze appears to be getting smaller.
Witnesses told Marcus Lush the fire is about a kilometre in width and there are a lot of crews fighting the flames, and that there are houses in the vicinity.
