Police have spoken to people seen on a walking track in the Hoon Hay Valley moments before the fire broke out on Christchurch's Port Hills, almost a week ago.

The cause of the fire is not yet known and is under investigation.

Fire crews are still working to dampen down hotspots and have just given a media briefing.
