Vegetation fire near Bluff Highway

Fire crews are attending an incident at Bluff Highway following reports of a transformer on fire.

A Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesman said firefighters were alerted to the blaze near the McGorlick St intersection about 1.30pm.

One fire appliance from Bluff attended where a 40m by 60m vegetation fire was discovered, he said.

"Two low pressure deliveries were sent out and they requested one pump from Invercargill.''

Fire crews later confirmed it was not a transformer on fire, but there could be a link between the vegetation blaze and a power source.

No structures were involved in the fire, nor were there any injuries.
