05/01/2012 – Wanaka Fire Images

This morning my girlfriend & I woke at 4am to the smell of smoke in our room, we had been sleeping with our windows open & soon found out there was a large fire close by in our neighbourhood. The fire was just behind Bevan & Islington Place at the bottom of Mt Iron, Wanaka. The blaze is now under control but fire fighters will be there for some time dampening down hot spots. The fire was very close to homes but they believe no homes were lost.
