Lower Hutt Gracefield Warehouse Fire

A fire that broke out in a Lower Hutt warehouse has been extinguished.

The blaze began around 4.15pm in an oil-fired furnace at Monroes Springs on Hutt Park Rd in Gracefield.

Five fire engines and their crews went to the scene, and police diverted traffic around the area. The fire was contained in an oil tempering bath inside the spring factory. A large column of smoke was visible from surrounding areas but the fire itself caused minimal damage to the factory.

There are no reports of injuries, a fire communications spokesman said.
