A man has been seriously burned in a large fire in Christchurch.
The large blaze broke out in a large storage shed on Mills Road in Marshlands at around 2pm.
St John took the seriously injured man to hospital and a second person was treated at the scene by paramedics.
A business owner next door said the fire has gutted the storage facility.
Ross Storer said the building was mainly just storage and small workshops and fire crews seem to have the blaze under control.
Three fire appliances and water tankers were used to tackle the fire.
