Firefighters worked through the night to protect homes from the fire still burning on the hillside above Wanaka-Mt Aspiring Road, Wanaka.
There is no public access to the Mt Roy Track, the Spotts Creek Track, and the Millennium Track from the Edgewater bridge to Waterfall Creek, today due to the fire.
