Dear Fire and Emergency New Zealand,

In February 2019 a series of vegetation wildfire occurred in the Tasman area. These fires included:
a. The Pigeon Valley Fire (5th Feb)
b. The Rabbit Island Fire (6th Feb);
c. The Walters Bluff Fire (8th Feb); and
d. The Moutere Hill Fire Redwood Valley (27th Feb)

A requested, you have provided under OIA the costs for the "Tasman Fires" (total of $11,826,436). In the way I submitted the request it is not entirely clear to me now if this is for all of the fires as listed above or just the Pigeon Valley Fire.

Under the provisions of the Official Information Act I request the following information on these fires:
1. For the Rabbit Island Fire please provide:
- a breakdown of the costs incurred by FENZ to control and extinguish this fire;
- the size in hectares of this fire; and
- a copy of the ComCen log for this fire?

2. For the Walters Bluff Fire please provide:
