A large forest fire has destroyed huge areas of the ANZAC battlefield located in Gallipoli.

Helicopters were called in with monsoon buckets to battle the fire at the site where New Zealanders fought in World War I.

The fire, which reportedly broke out as a result of sparks from a welding machine combined with strong winds.

Two helicopters, two amphibians, and ground fire crews were deployed to the area to deal with the blaze, eventually bringing it under control a few hours after it erupted.

Gallipoli is a place of huge cultural significance to New Zealand, after an unsuccessful campaign by Allied troops there in 1915 resulted in the deaths of 2779 Kiwis.
