A park ranger living on the door step of Christchurch's Bottle Lake Forest Park says a spate of fires in the area is the worst he's seen in three decades.

The popular walking and biking spot north-east of the city is visited by a million people a year and now the public are being urged to be vigilant and help solve the mystery.
