INVERCARGILL. 30th November.

The weather has been exceedingly dry and hot for some days. A bush fire was lighted to the north of the town for clearing purposes ; it gradually spread. To-day a* very strong north wind fanned it up, and drove it towards the town. One suburb, Clinton, in a clearing, is com: pletely surrounded, and the smoke and flames form so dense a belt round it that it is impossible for the men to get in to ascertain the danger. Three houses on the outskirts are known to. be burnt. The firemen turned out, also the, townspeople, but could - render little assistance, , owing to the want of water and extent of burning surface.
