Fire and Emergency Adjusts Fire Season Back to Restricted
FENZ’s website explains a restricted fire status means “a permit is required to light most fire types”.
Waimakariri and Selwyn districts are also going back to a restricted fire status, while Christchurch and Banks Peninsula remain on a prohibited status due to dry conditions and grass curing.
You can check which types of fire are still alright, like gas BBQs, braziers and wood-fire pizza ovens, at www.checkitsalright.nz
