Two fires in the same apartment block

17:24, Jan 23 2014

Fire crews were called to the same block of flats twice in one night for two different fires in Gisborne.

A fire communication spokesman said crews went to a fire at the Gladstone Rd apartments at about 2.45am and then again at about 4.40am.

He said he understood the first fire was minor, and but the second fire took longer for crews to put out.

The cause of the fires was not known yet, but fire investigators were on the scene.
