Investigations continue into fire at Taneatua Police station

Investigations are continuing into the fire which extensively damaged the Taneatua Police station on Tuesday night.

About a third of the building was damaged, but smoke and water damage is extensive.

The officer stationed at Taneatua heard an explosion and then the fire broke out.

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Standen doubts that the police station can be repaired, and police are making other arrangements for the officer normally stationed there.
