In March, plumes of fire could be seen across Hamilton thanks to a large shed fire south of the city. More than 20 fire fighters were called to the scene at local business, Penguin Pools by the acting shift manager. Unfortunately, the half of the building was filled with hay bales which added fuel to the flame. Image via stuff.co.nz.
This month, fire ripped through a Hamilton home that was gutted thanks to oil left on a stovetop, a common cause of kitchen fires across the nation. This kind of fire can be seen in both residential and commercial kitchen environments. Fires like this can be controlled with the use of a maintained fire extinguisher or fire blanket.
A man and his dog escaped a blaze at the end of May after attempting to control a fire in his car with a portable fire extinguisher borrowed from a local business. Hamilton business, Tyre Tracks, sprang into action and gave the man their fire extinguisher to use on the vehicle. Unfortunately, the car couldn’t be salvaged, but both man and dog were safe. This is a great example of where fire extinguishers can be installed. It is useful to have fire protection equipment available in both vehicles and buildings. Image via stuff.co.nz.
Another local business suffered losses in May thanks to a fire. Local strip club, Calendar Girls, was engulfed by flames that caused potential damage to neighbouring buildings including Biddy Mulligan’s Irish Pub and the Victoria Accident and Medical Centre.
