    Fire crews will return this morning to battle a blaze in South Otago


    The fire began at the edge of Te Papanui Conservation Park near Middlemarch just before 11am yesterday.

    By 6pm, it had burned through just over two-thousand-700 hectares of remote tussock and scrub.

    One property has been evacuated as a precaution.
