A house fire in Lyttelton, near Christchurch, is now out after it went up in flames this afternoon.
The fire sent smoke billowing across the harbour.
It was on Harmans Rd, above the tunnel entrance, and was well-involved when fire fighters arrived, a fire spokesperson says.
Eyewitness Darren Mead, across the other side of the harbour, told Newshub he could see "lots of smoke". He says the fire looked dramatic, and could spot three fire engines.
