All of the Northland District is moving to a restricted fire season, except for the area north of Awanui to Cape Reinga and the Karikari Peninsula (that are year round in a restricted fire season) which will move to a prohibited fire season.

The change took place 8am Wednesday 12 January (today).

A restricted fire season means a permit will be required to light an open-air fire. If you need to apply for a permit, please use the ‘can I light a fire’ tool on www.checkitsalright.nz

08/01/2022: KAIMAUMAU - WAIHARARA FIRE UPDATE

Submitted by admin2 on Sat, 08/01/2022 - 6:58pm

Good morning everyone from the Far North. Today at the Waiharara fire we have 64 firefighters on the ground, they are being supported by the same number of support staff. The support staff range from the Incident Management Team to helicopter pilots and heavy machinery operators. We also have nine pieces of heavy machinery and four helicopters and another one available. Everyone plays a crucial role in the management of this fire. Yesterday a predicted easterly wasn't as strong as first thought, but it does appear as if some wind from the east is starting to come through this morning.
