Man rips open pool to save his Christchurch home

From Morning Report, 7:46 am on 3 February 2015

A Christchurch man had to rip open his plastic para pool during frantic efforts to hold off a large fire which came within two metres of the family home yesterday. The blaze, which took hold on the side of State Highway One just before the settlement of Rolleston, burned through 15 hectares of farmland and threatened two homes.
