Firefighters remain on high alert in Canterbury over fears a grass fire which destroyed at least four homes and part of a poultry farm could flare up again. The fire, fanned by a strong wind, began about 3pm on Thursday and caused damage to around 150 hectares in the Shands Road area of Prebbleton on the outskirts of Christchurch.
