Ac­ci­den­tal fire

Central Leader - - NEWS -

A fire that badly dam­aged a women’s hos­tel was ac­ci­den­tal. At least two dozen fire­fight­ers from four crews were called to the Love­lock Ave, Mt Eden, hos­tel just be­fore 3pm on June 5. The hos­tel is owned by the United Maori Mis­sion and housed a mix­ture of stu­dents, older women and the un­em­ployed. Neigh­bours heard scream­ing and saw dis­tressed women on the road dur­ing the blaze that was found to have started by a lap­top com­puter that had been left charg­ing on a bed.
