Fire fighters have put out a scrub fire near Tahuna Beach, which spread about twenty metres wide.
Two fire engines from Nelson attended the fire, as did local police.
Fire fighter Simon Mitchell says the fire could have been either deliberately lit or perhaps from a carelessly discarded cigarette. “It was a small fire in the end. Luckily there was no wind.”
Several Tahunanui residents contacted Nelson Live saying they had seen smoke coming from the area.
