Nelson fire brings it all back for Port Hills

From Morning Report, 8:19 am on 11 February 2019

This week marks two years since the Port Hills fire, which destroyed nine homes, damaged five, and forced thousands to evacuate. A helicopter pilot, Steve Askin, died fighting the blaze that tore through nearly 2-thousand hectares. And as residents evacuated from their homes in Tasman wait to return, the fire has brought back memories for those affected by the blaze near Christchurch.
