Nelson fire: Teapot Valley farmer stays behind

From Morning Report, 6:13 am on 8 February 2019

Dozens of people have been evacuated from Teapot Valley southwest of Nelson after a flare-up in the fire late on Thursday afternoon. But Dorje Strang who farms in the valley is determined to stay. His business produces honey and he also has a vineyard in the area. Mr Strang spoke to Morning Report producer Jane Dunbar last night as he nervously watched the fire move across the valley.
