A Bush Fire at Chance in Portsmouth Saturday morning kept nearby residents holding their breaths, until fire officers arrived and put it out.
The fire started in their neighbourhood and kept drawing closer to their homes. It reportedly began at about 11:00 am, and residents watched in absolute horror as it kept expanding.
By the time the fire was extinguished by the fire officers, the blaze was literally some feet away from some of the homes. No injuries were reported, but the hillside is badly scotched. The cause is still unknown.
