Red zone house destroyed by fire

11:02 am on 28 August 2013

An abandoned house in Kaiapoi's red zone was destroyed by fire on Tuesday night.

The Fire Service was called out just after 5.30pm and spent an hour putting out the fire.

They were then called back to the house just before 8pm when the fire re-ignited.

It was finally put out by using an excavator to push in the walls of the house.
