Six people who deliberately ignored the fire ban could be prosecuted.

Western Bay Moana Rural Fire Authority principal rural fire officer Barry Low said he was reviewing six fires lit despite the fire ban to determine whether to prosecute.

"If you deliberately flout a total fire ban you could be liable for a fine of up to $2000."
