    Big fire cranking up in Canterbury!

    Looks like a big fire has started up in the Waimak gorge area. Going to be hard to fight with the NWer blowing

    What's the weather doing? Could be a tricky area to get it under control

    Blowing NW but not too much smoke coming up now. Hopefully they've got it under control.

    Passed over the gorge before lunch, plenty of smoke. East side of Broken River. Hope they get under control as theres heaps of dry country below it.

    It is by the rail bridge over Broken river near where it enters the Waimak, sounds like it was caused by a train.
