Wellington fire disrupts traffic near airport

9:59 pm on 7 June 2009

Traffic diversions remain in place near Wellington airport after a two storey Breaker Bay house was completely destroyed by fire.

The diversions are set up at the Pass Of Branda toward Seatoun, and Stewart Duff Drive at Moa Point, but were due to be lifted about 9pm on Sunday.

Police say restricting traffic was necessary to allow emergency services access to the house, which sent smoke billowing over the area.
