Snow and rain have helped, but it could take months to fully extinguish a scrub fire in the Mackenzie District.

Property owners who were evacuated were able to return home yesterday. The blaze near Lake Pukaki quickly spread from Sunday, and is still active.

RNZ reporter Tess Brunton has been covering the fire.
