Nelson fire: Teapot Valley locals flee blaze

From Morning Report, 7:35 am on 8 February 2019

It's been an anxious night for people living in Teapot Valley near the big Nelson fire. There've been no forced evacuations but residents were told last night to be ready to go at short notice. Many decided not to wait. Morning Report's Alex Ashton was out talking to them last night. Graham Cole just grabbed the essentials when emergency services came to his house and told him it was time to move. Alex who lives on Bell Road said he was hoping emergency crews would let him back in to grab a few things...but he wasn't particularly worried about his house.
