10:20 Mackenzie fire continues by burning underground fuels

It's almost a week since the blaze near Lake Pukaki in the Mackenzie District started and rural fire and emergency continue round the clock to bring it under control.

Karyn catches up with Principal Rural Fire Officer Rob Hands as he prepares a team of 50 firefighters for the weekend ahead.

The fire near Lake Pukaki near the foot of Aoraki/Mt Cook, in the Mackenzie Country, was contained after snow and heavy rain hit the area but could take months to fully extinguish. 2 September 2020

He wrote up his findings for The Spinoff and he joins Karyn to dish the slithery details.
