Cow shed fire sparks emergency response

By Staff reporter

An early morning cow shed fire sparked an emergency response from Maketu volunteer firefighters.

The brigade were called to a property off State Highway 2 just after 5am today.

A water pump attached to the cow shed caught fire and was beginning to spread to the rest of the shed.

However, a farmer had managed to extinguish the fire before the brigade arrived before any major damage was done.
