Two vehicles destroyed in garage fire

Crews from the Gore Volunteer Fire Brigade work to extinguish a garage fire yesterday morning, which also destroyed two vehicles.

A Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesman said the call about the fire at the building in Wigan St was received at 8.55am, and crews found it well alight.

Two trucks, a water tanker and a support vehicle were sent.

The spokesman said at 10.15am that crews remained at the scene, but had extinguished the blaze.
