LATEST: A factory in South Taranaki has been gutted by fire.

Multiple fire brigades were called to a fire in a building at Taranaki By-products on Kohiti Rd near Okaiawa about midday.

Hawera chief fire officer Darryl Fowler said the fire was well involved and the building was severely damaged.

Nobody was inside at the time of the fire.

Kohiti Rd was closed for several hours.

This was the third time in two years the factory had caught fire.

Last March fire crews battled a blaze at the factory which had started in a blood and bone dryer.

Is high tea at a funeral parlour your cup of tea?

Yes, it's fun and even educational.

Hmmm, I don't object but it's not for me.

No, it's macabre and in bad taste.

Over my dead body ...
