Firefighters spent more than five hours at a house fire
in the Dunedin suburb of Musselburgh yesterday morning.
The Fire Service was called to the blaze, which started in a
meter box, at a two-storey house on Cavell St about 3.45am
yesterday, Fire Southern Communications shift manager Brent
Four fire engines went to the scene after it was suggested
someone was in the house, but it was later found to be empty,
Mr Dunn said.
He said the fire was relatively small but, because of the
size of the property, it took a long time to make sure the
fire had been put out. It was not believed to be suspicious.
There was minor damage to the house.
The last fire engine left the house just before 9am.
