Fire at Waikawa December 2007





8 December 2007

Nine fire trucks from Levin, Otaki and Te Horo, and a helicopter with monsoon bucket responded to the scrub fire at the northern end of the pine plantation. The blaze is believed to have been triggered by fireworks.

The ute that got stuck trying to cross the river has since been written off.
