Dunedin to lift fire ban

10:16 pm on 9 April 2013

A total fire ban in Dunedin will end on Wednesday.

Dunedin City Council prohibited all fires four weeks ago because of a high risk of fires getting out of control in dry conditions.

But weather stations have shown the risk has eased as nightly temperatures have dropped.

The ban ends at 6am.
