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.
