‘It’s all just bricks and mortar’ – Christchurch family devastated after first-day fire at ‘dream home’

  • A Christchurch family are devastated after a fire ripped through their “dream home” just hours after they took the keys and moved in.

Georgia Scott, 37, and Michael Rodgers, 35, and their children Sienna, 2, and 3-year-old Finley waited five weeks to finally move in to their “quarter-acre dream” home on Port Hills Rd, Heathcote, at around 1pm yesterday.
