Grass fire in North Dunedin extinguished

Crews have extinguished a small grass fire in North Dunedin this afternoon.

A Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesman said they were called to the blaze, at Dalmore Reserve on Allenby Ave, Liberton about 3.30pm.

The fire was about 10m by 10m.

Crews from Willowbank, Dunedin Central and Wakari attended.

Firefighters used a "forestry pack", a lightweight hose which is lighter to handle and uses less water, the spokesman said.

Police were called to assist with traffic management.

The spokesman said the fire was out by 4.50pm.
