Car fire ravages home
A Central Otago home has been ravaged by a fire believed to have started in a car. Emergency services were called to a property Rere Rd, in Lake Hayes Estate near Queenstown, just after 3am yesterday. A Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesman said it was believed a car in the home’s garage has caught on fire. The car was well ablaze when firefighters arrived. Crews worked for several hours to contain the fire, but it spread through the house. Fire investigators were trying to determine the cause.
