Open fires are banned in Ashburton District

Ashburton District Council has been notified by the Mid-South Canterbury Rural Fire Authority that there is a total fire ban for the district effective immediately.

All open fires, including field burnoffs, are now banned throughout the district.

With fire resources stretched as volunteer fire crews are assisting the efforts with the Port Hills fires in Selwyn and Christchurch, Ashburton residents and farmers are being reminded of the fire risks in the dry weather and are being told to refrain from any open fires.
