Where There's Smoke...

Heavy, dense, billowing, black smoke poured from a five-room house at 522 Aberdeen Road recently when a fire, which is thought to have originated in the hot-water cupboard, spread rapidly to the roof of the dwelling.

The Gisborne Fire Brigade were soon on the scene, and within quarter of an hour, had the fire under control.
