New Zealand: Large wildfire expected to burn for weeks longer

BBC
In New Zealand, a large wildfire is expected to burn for weeks longer, firefighters said today. The blaze has moved away from some inhabited areas, allowing residents of an evacuated village to return home soon. 

Fire chief John Sutton said that although conditions had eased, the fire remained unpredictable and it was too early to say it was under control. The fire erupted early last week amid scorching conditions in the heavily forested area.

About 3,000 inhabitants of Wakefield, just outside Nelson in South Island, were ordered out on Saturday as flames razed bushland within two kilometers of their homes.
