Fire crews initially could not reach the 50sq m and 20sq m blazes due to fallen power lines in the Reservoir Rd area, near the golf course.
Emergency services were called about 7.15pm.
About 8.20pm a firefighter at the scene said the fires had been suppressed.
Crews from Ravensbourne and Port Chalmers attended, with backup from rural firefighters.
