The fires ranged in size from 20mx20m to 100mx12m.
Fire crews from the Sumner, Lyttelton and Governors Bay stations attended.
Caleb Alexander told the Herald he was on the Port Hills with friends and saw a flare shoot over the hill on the sugarloaf side which he says started the fire.
"A cause of the fires is yet to be determined," the spokesman said.
