The Horowhenua District Council has ramped up its fire restrictions, following a blaze in Cape Palliser.

A total fire ban will now be in place from midnight tomorrow - though barbecues are still allowed.

The ban comes after a scrub fire that spanned 20 hectares was put out last night.

Six rural fire crews and a helicopter remain on the scene dampening down hot spots.
