Fire crews are battling a 40-metre hedge fire at the Oxford A&P showgrounds.
A Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesman said five crews were working to extinguish the fire at the showgrounds on Bay Rd in Oxford after a call was made at 3.12pm on Friday.
The fire was not threatening any buildings, he said.
More to come.
