Wildfire Breaks Out in Hills of Lower Hutt

A wildfire broke out in the hills of Lower Hutt, New Zealand, on October 22, prompting a helicopter response to attempt to contain it.

This footage, posted in a Twitter thread by Nick Malcolm, shows the fire burning in greenery behind Waddington Drive.

Reports citing firefighters said that the blaze had been contained on Friday; however, emergency services’ aerial efforts were put at risk by the use of a drone over the fire site. Credit: Nick Malcolm via Storyful
