Container fire out

6:09 am on 12 December 2010

A fire in containers filled with LPG gas cylinders, at a transport company in Hamilton, was put out on Saturday night.

The Fire Service says nine fire engines were sent to the scene in Kent Street in Frankton, at about 11.30pm.

Hamilton City Council increased the water pressure in its fire hydrants to help them as there was a risk the gas cylinders could explode.

The fire was extinguished just before midnight.
