A large fire spread across 150m of vegetation in Canterbury in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Crews from the Rolleston and Lincoln fire stations battled the blaze for about an hour after it was reported at 2.40am.

The fire on Lincoln Rolleston Rd in the Selwyn district spread through 150m of trees and shrubs but is not being treated as suspicious.
