Two people suffered serious burns in a shed fire in Christchurch last night.

Emergency services were called to a property on Hamilton Ave, in the suburb of Ilam, shortly before 10pm.

A southern fire communications spokeswoman said two people had been taken to hospital in a serious condition.

Southern fire communications shift manager, Daryl Ball, said the 4m by 5m shed was well alight when fire crews arrived.

Fire investigators are looking into the cause of the blaze.
