In February 2017, Canterbury’s Port Hills suffered significant damage when fire ripped through and destroyed around 200ha of land including 11 homes. Over 1500 people were evacuated from their homes for the duration of the fire which burned for five days. A state of emergency was declared by the Government to enable further resources to assist with the blaze.
