A large scrub fire that ripped through scrub and gorse on a hill above Dunedin City was brought under control shortly before 7pm on Monday. 

However, the success of fire crews controlling the blaze did not come before a precautionary evacuation of half a dozen semi-rural properties in the suburb of Helensburgh.
