Wednesday, March 01, 2017   Posted in: Newsletters By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, Community Groups, migrants, refugees

The fires on Port Hills started from two different locations on 13th February 2017, and later merged. Status almost a week later on 20th February was that the fire covered an area of 2075 hectares. The perimeter was about 35km. Approximately 69 percent of this was confirmed as controlled.

During the week, hundreds were evacuated and the number of confirmed destroyed structures stood at 11 houses and two large sheds. The City also lost a war hero Steve Askin, when his helicopter crashed on the Hills during the fire fighting efforts.
