Another fire at Tapu Te Ranga – minimal damage

Press Release – Tapu-te-Ranga Trust and Marae
Fire and Emergency were called to a fire after 9pm tonight in a house bus situated on the second whenua of the Tapu-te-Ranga Trust. We are grateful that no tenants were hurt and that damage was minimal.

This was an isolated incident and unrelated to the marae fire which occurred on Sunday 9 June.

Both Fire and Emergency NZ and the Wellington City Council checked all the dwellings on our property after the marae fire. Fire and Emergency also supplied long life smoke alarms to tenants.

The marae papakāinga was fitted with fire alarm systems well before these events.

A maumahara community service will be held this Sunday 23 June at Tapu Te Ranga Marae from 1:30pm. This is an opportunity for the community and those directly involved with the marae fire, including Scouts NZ, emergency services, neighbours and social services to find comfort and closure in a time of reflection, prayer and karakia.

Ngā Mihi,
Tapu-te-Ranga Trust
