The flames are out at the Middlemarch fire in Otago, but more than 4600 hectares of landscape has been left devastated and smouldering.

That includes the Deep Stream catchment valley, which usually supplies about 80 percent of Dunedin's water supply.

Dunedin's mayor Aaron Hawkins has put out a plea for residents to conserve water to get the city through summer.
