Where there's smoke, there's not necessarily fire, as it turns out.
Two fire engines were called out to New Plymouth's local strip club Crave at about 12.45 this afternoon, when smoke from the downstairs business started pouring out the building's Courtenay St level vents.
The smoke was caused by Crave Club staff testing a smoke machine, which had just been repaired.
The club occupies the lower level of former pub The Mill.
