Fatal garage fire not considered suspicious

3:27 pm on 5 July 2010

Police no longer regard a fatal fire in the Auckland suburb of Glenfield at the weekend as suspicious.

The Fire Service was called to the fire at 1.30am on Saturday after neighbours reported a vehicle on fire in a garage.

When they arrived, the garage was fully alight and the fire had spread to the house. A body was found in a burnt-out car in the garage.

Police say there is no indication that foul play was involved.
