Bri­gade kept busy

Kaikoura Star - - FRONT PAGE -

Three fe­male oc­cu­pants es­caped in­jury when their car hit a bank while trav­el­ling south down a slope to the Con­way River bridge on Wed­nes­day.

Med­i­cal staff said the three were very lucky to avoid ma­jor in­jury after the car hit the road bank and bounced across the road, avoid­ing any on­com­ing traf­fic and end­ing up on its side.

They were taken to Kaik­oura Hos­pi­tal by St John am­bu­lance.

The fire bri­gade was also busy late at night in the week­end.

Chief fire of­fi­cer Ian Walker said guests at a mo­tel on the Es­planade called the emer­gency 111 num­ber about mid­night on Satur­day after a smoke alarm went off in their mo­tel unit.

Then again at mid­night on Sun­day the fire bri­gade was called out when an alarm was ac­ti­vated at Kaik­oura High School, but it was a false alarm.
