From Morning Report, 8:13 am on 11 February 2019

As the Nelson-Tasman fire enters its seventh day, a make-shift campsite for evacuated residents and animals is showing no signs of slowing down. More than two-dozen residents camping at the site in Richmond are still anxiously waiting to be given the all clear to return home. At least 750 animals are now being cared for at the town's A&P grounds.
