Gorse Fire Threatens Home

Late February, early March is burning off time and for several days the sun had difficulty in piercing the smoke-filled air over Nelson, On the Wakapuaka road, a gorse fire got out of control and a northerly wind carried it towards the home of Mr Ray Hodgson. The Nelson Fire Brigade had little (difficulty in preventing the fire from causing any damage to the home or property, however.
