From Midday Report, 12:50 pm on 16 February 2024

Residents are eager to get back into their homes as the Port Hills wildfires begin to come under control, but Fire and Emergency is acting with extreme caution.

One house has been destroyed in the blaze, and others came within hundreds of metres of the flames.

Residents from about 80 homes are evacuated. Some of them gathered Friday morning for an update from the authorities.
