Fire has destroyed a large printing warehouse in Auckland, NZ. The incident drew a 4th alarm with first arriving appliances finding heavy smoke showing. There were several evacuations from the building and surrounding structures, including a church.
Defensive firefighting was undertaken as the building was too unstable to enter and also posed an asbestos risk.
