Fire crews called to NZ Insurance building

Firefighters were called to the NZ Insurance building in central Dunedin yesterday, following reports of a burning smell.

Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) spokesman Rewai Grace, in a report from Otago Daily Times, said the occupants called police about 11:30am after smelling strong acrid burning, which they “'thought smelled like plastic.”

FENZ crews arrived at the 37 St. Andrew St premises, along with a ladder truck, which they used to gain access to the building’s roof. Apart from a slight whiff of burning, the investigation reportedly revealed no fire in the area.

Grace told the publication that NZI’s building was then left in the hands of the alarm company
