Fire re­ports not se­ri­ous

The Northern Advocate - - Local News -

Far North fire ser­vices were called out on two alarms yes­ter­day, al­though nei­ther proved se­ri­ous on closer in­spec­tion. Around 4.30pm fire crews and ap­pli­ances from Kaeo, Kerik­eri and Man­gonui re­sponded to a re­port a house was on fire at the Whangaroa Health site in Kaeo. It turned out to be a smok­ing mo­tor in a wash­ing ma­chine. A re­port of a struc­ture fire in Kaikohe at mid­day turned out to be the bat­tery from a cell­phone catch­ing light and set­ting off a smoke alarm.
