The Northland Helicopters pilot found a barracuda in the bucket while dampening down hot spots of the fire at Matai Bay on Karikari Peninsula.

A Fire Service spokesperson says the fire has been burning over a contained area of nine hectares near the DOC campground since New Year's Eve.

They say crews will be on site all day, keeping it under control.
