Power unit catches fire

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Fire trucks city-wide were called at noon on Mon­day when a back-up power sup­ply unit caught fire in a server room on Unitec’s Mt Al­bert cam­pus.

Ex­tin­guish­ers pened the blaze.

Avon­dale se­nior sta­tion of­fi­cer Gary Lane says six crews brought more ex­tin­guish­ers and smaller ones were gath­ered from the cam­pus.

‘‘When we got into the room the smoke was so thick we had to use a ther­mal imag­ing cam­era to pin­point the ex­act lo­ca­tion of the fire,’’ Mr Lane says.

Only the power unit was dam­aged.
