Three separate fires in Hastings were treated as suspicious

The three Hastings fires that have been lit for a period of one hour seem to be connected and treated as suspicious.

Thirteen appliances responded last night to separate incidents in the Lighthouse building at Varren, the Opera House Havke's Bai and the Bai Plaza Bucket.

The commander of the Hawke's Bay Bai Ken Cooper said both houses forced entry and worked with the police to determine the reason.

"In both cases, we had an early identification and a quick reaction with the Hastings and Napier stations, so the damage was limited to the place of origin where the fire was lit."

It is understandable that the bulk of the damage was associated with smoke.

They had to bring volunteers outside the district to cover the stations. "We had cover, but it obviously points out," Cooper said.

Hastings' senior station officer Mike Peachey said they were notified of the Fire of the Opera around 10:15 am by a crew who attended another firefighting operation in Hastings.

Emergency services were spent three hours in a large store building after fire began behind the stadium, on the ground floor of the building on three floors.

He said that all the resources in that area went off in search of fire. Nine appliances attended the scene at Hastings St.

"It was pretty well closed due to the construction of the building," Peachey said.

Chief Executive Officer Caroline Lampp said fire started in the backyard of the property and there was "a reasonable amount of damage".

She is not sure how much it will cost for repairs, and the insurance company estimates the damage.

"It is especially disappointing for clients who come to the center daily and we are not yet sure whether in the meantime we will be able to continue to work there until the fire and the inspector look back.

"If we can not continue, it will be particularly disturbing for customers coming every day."

This is not the first time that it happened, with Cooper pointing out that in the last three or four weeks there have been several instances when they were called to small waste bins or cardboard set that came out of business premises.

"We work with business owners and we would like to remind them during this festive period to ensure their maintenance is in order … not to store paper or trash out of their properties and obviously to ensure alertness beyond their properties when it leaves."

He invited those who deliberately set fire to think about the lives they endure and the resources they take away from potentially other incidents that they could react to.

A police spokeswoman said they were working with Fire to determine the cause of the fire.

"We will also investigate whether the three weapons are connected. We have not identified any suspects yet or have not made any arrests yet."

Last year, the government invested $ 4 million in the cost of protection from the earthquake of the Opera.

Reconstruction of the building is in progress.
