Church, marae, and house threatened by Hawke's Bay fire

If it had not been a still day, a fire in Hawke's Bay could have consumed a church, marae, and house. Emergency services were called to the vegetation fire in Te Hauke, Central Hawke's Bay, about 2.20 this afternoon. This was one of many call outs for Hawke's Bay fire crews, with other vegetation fires in Ongaonga, and in Napier. The fire had burnt through hundreds of metres of enclosed yards and paddocks.
