Timelapse: Massive bush fire

About 40 firefighters have managed to contain a large bush fire beneath the summit of Roy's Peak, Wanaka, overnight after a farmer's burn-off got out of control and threatened conservation land. The fire burned about 100ha of farmland and came within 400m of The Stack conservation area near the Roy's Peak walking track.
