Three helicopters fight forest fire in Northland


Three helicopters have been called in to fight a forest fire in Northland.

The alarm was raised about 9.30am today and fire crews were called to Kelly's Bay, 50km south east of Dargaville.

It's believed the Department of Conservation is running the operation.

Kelly's Bay is a small beach settlement on the western shoreline of Pouto Peninsula, on the northern arm of the Kaipara Harbour.
