Fire Safety Message Following Blaze

July 9, 2018


Eight crews responded to a well involved house fire in Waikanae on Friday night in which the house was totally destroyed.


The blaze spread to two other buildings on Tutere Street, which were both extinguished.


Chief Fire Officer at Waikanae Volunteer Fire Brigade, Sara Sundgren says it was one of the "bigger" fires she's dealt with in her 25 years in the brigade.


The four occupants of the home were all accounted for.


Officer Sundgren says the message from this fire and any fire is, to call 111 as soon as you see flames, or as soon as you see any signs of fire.


Fire guards in front of fire places are really important and the most important thing is the smoke alarms.


At this stage the cause of the fire has been ruled undetermined, but there is an ongoing investigation.
