Operations have begun again at the Evergreen Crescent fire ground this morning. Today we have one helicopter on the ground available for work as required and six crews – one from Manawatu-Whanganui, one from Horowhenua, and four from around Wellington. Firefighters dealt with a couple of hot spots overnight but the fire hasn’t grown in size and remains around 14ha. Due to the great mahi by everyone yesterday, we’re in a good position today for firefighters to continue mopping up the fire. People are reminded to please stay off the fire ground and away from the area to let firefighters do their work.
