A barn on Rutland Road in Carterton was engulfed in flames shortly before 11pm last night. Firefighters were still at the scene this morning as the blaze persisted and hot spots re-ignited.

"It is a 20m by 50m barn. It is fully involved in fire and was when we arrived. At this stage it isn't under control."


He said there had been no reports of anyone in the barn or having sustained any injuries.

Eight appliances are at the scene and several support units are on their way to the scene from Wellington.
