Eight fire trucks to Temuka blaze
Eight fire appliances were called out in the early hours of this morning after fire engulfed part of a house near Temuka.
The fire started about 12.30am, engulfing the kitchen and dining area of the Waipopo Rd house.
Washdyke station officer Trevor Karton said all residents were out of the house by the time fire crews arrived and no one was injured. It is not yet known how the fire started.
''The cause of fire is under investigation,'' he said.
Trucks from Temuka, Timaru and Geraldine also attended the fire, leaving very little room for any other appliances to assist, Mr Karton said.
''You hit it hard as soon as you can,'' he said, of the amount of appliances in attendance.
