"A whole village with around 3,000 residents have been evacuated to New Zealand. Wakefield on the south Island are threatened by a forest fire that the firemen have no control over. Now, ask the rescue workers to the higher powers that the wind should not increase."
"the Fire covers an area of about 2 100 hectares and is expected to spread against Wakefield on Sunday."
" I'm worried for tomorrow. Today, we are strategically good, but if it starts to blow a little more, we are in God's hands, " says the local fire chief John Sutton."
"Helicopters are assisting in fighting the fire, but they can also be used to extinguish other fires in the area, among other things, to ensure that the city of Nelson with over 50 000 inhabitants do not suffer."
