Photos of burnt-out building released


Photos of Motueka’s burnt-out Abel Glass building on Old Wharf Road have been released.

The photos show the damage that Wednesday night’s fire inflicted on the building.

The fire that originated in and collapsed the middle section of the building is believed to have been started by an electrical event but Motueka Volunteer Fire Brigade Chief Fire Officer Mike Riddell says the cause will remain undetermined.

“Due to the damage sustained in the fire we can’t pinpoint it to an exact cause but it will be something to do with the electrics, everything else has been ruled out.”
