Northland fire restrictions still in place despite rain

From Morning Report, 8:36 am on 10 March 2020

Some rain may have fallen in the north, but fire restrictions remain in place.

Last week a fire threatened at least 10 houses. Investigations are ongoing, but time, location and conditions point towards a campfire getting out of control.

There have been more than 100 avoidable fires in Northland so far this fire season and Fire and Emergency are urging people to heed the fire ban.

Myles Taylor is Northland's Principal Rural Fire officer.

He speaks to Susie Ferguson.
