A small fire started in the eastern hills around 5pm today in the area between Naenae and Fairfield the closest houses being around Summit Road. It started near a water reservoir about 1/2 km up the fire break. View Larger Map
The small fire was quickly contained by emergency services and the fire was out by 6.30pm.
This follows the more substantial fire two weeks ago in Wingate and the large one in Titahi Bay last week.
Last night around 9.30pm as we reported via Twitter a car crashed into a house on the corner of Naenae Road and Gibson Crescent.
A Toyota Corrolla sedan had lost control (apparently from burnouts) and hit the front of a brick house causing structual damage.
No one in the house was injured. Of the two male passengers, one has suffered moderate injuries while the driver had to be cut out from the car. It is reported that he has serious but not life threatening injuries.
The area around the incident was closed for several hours as the accident was investigated.
The Wellington Based Westpac Rescue Helicopter was called out late yesterday evening at 9pm to two Motocross riders both 35yr old males from Wainuiomata who had crashed into each other in the hills above Naenae.
The two riders both from the same riding group had crashed when one member was going up the track and the other was coming down.
The Helicopter with two Wellington Free Paramedics on board responded to the area.
A third member from the riding party was able to guide the helicopter into a landing site with a torch. The Pilot and crew were both wearing Night Vision Goggles which made seeing the torch very easy from approx 10km away. The Helicopter was able to land about 1km from the patients.
The Paramedics then walked up the track and assessed the two patients.
The patients was then flown to Wellington Hospital Emergency Department where they are being treated. One patient had Upper Leg Injuries and the other patient had suffered a Shoulder injury
