Caravan fire spreads to house in early morning Porirua blaze

The cause of an early morning fire that started in a caravan and spread to a house is yet to be determined.

A Fire and Emergency spokeswoman said services were called to an address in Whitby, Porirua, about 3.30am on Friday.

The fire had started in a caravan on the Canary Way property before spreading to a nearby house, the spokeswoman said.

Four fire vehicles from Porirua, Titahi Bay and Johnsonville attended the blaze.

Fire and Emergency investigators are investigating the cause of the blaze.

No injuries were reported as a result of the fire.

A business, Hel on Wheels Mobile Dog Grooming Ltd, posted on social media and said all appointments would be postponed until further notice because of the fire.

“I regret to inform you all that my van and home caught fire in the early hours of this morning, and I’m postponing all appointments until further notice,” said the post.

A spokeswoman for the business declined to comment when approached by Stuff.

A police spokeswoman said police had not been alerted to the incident.
