Fire at Martinborough vineyard

7:06 am on 28 January 2016

Firefighters have put out a large fire at a vineyard near Martinborough in southern Wairarapa.

Fire crews called to the Murdoch James Estate in Dyerville shortly before 11pm night arrived to find a 250 square metre barn used to store tractors well ablaze.

The Fire Service says the fire took about three-and-a-half hours to extinguish. No-one was injured.

Investigators are due at the estate this morning to try to determine the cause.
