Hi Waikato,

Do you have a fire escape plan?

A fire that engulfed a house in Pokeno was found to have been caused by grass clippings catching alight on a lawnmower that was still hot from use.

Fire crews responded to the house fire on January 31, with four crews at the scene and another three dispatched.

Area Commander Geoff Purcell said that the occupants of the house were lucky to get out quickly. "This fire shows that fire can get very real, fast...It can take just three minutes for a fire to become deadly."

Share your thoughts below and please type NFP if you don't want your comments featured in your local community paper.

Hi there,
Canterbury has been named the fifth most welcoming region in the world in the Booking.com Traveller Review Awards, while Oamaru, Hokitika and Invercargill have been named the most welcoming towns in NZ. They were followed by Cambridge, Picton, Lake Tekapo, Kerikeri, Palmerston North, Paihia and Twizel.
We'd be really keen to hear your thoughts on this based on your own travels around New Zealand. Do you think Canterbury is NZ's most welcoming region? And are these our most welcoming towns?
Where in NZ have you been made to feel particularly welcome on your travels?
As usual, please put 'NFP' in your comment if you don't want it to be included in an article. Cheers.
