Port Hills Fire

For the last couple of days fires have been burning in the Port Hills above Christchurch very dry weather and strong winds fading the flames. Today the wind changed direction taking the flames towards the city.  One brave helicopter pilot died yesterday helping to douse the flames and tonight people are being evacuated from their homes as the flames approach. Some houses have been lost and I can’t imagine how that feels but my thoughts go out to all the people affected. I took a few (not very good) images from work this morning and evening from a distance as no one needs to get in the way of the fire or those brave people fighting it.
