Guy Fawkes a non-event despite silly stunts By RHIANNON HORRELL Guy Fawkes has been a smooth run despite a number of fireworks-related mishaps and silly stunts over the past two weeks, according to Fire Service officials. Auckland senior fire risk management officer George Stephens describes the occasion as a non-event. There have been a couple of nuisances and those acting irresponsibly, which have included playgrounds where people have set fire to equip- ment. This saddens us and there is also the usual num- ber of discarded fireworks laying around. He says the only serious case involved a young boy who was burned as a result of mischievous behaviour. The eight or nine-year-old received minor burns to his face of a non-threatening nature. From what I ve been told, he was stuffing fire- works into a doll and set them alight. He miscal- culated the effect and his mother has been able to get him to cold water immedi- ately. Last week also saw reports of a pipe bomb explosion near Church St but Onehunga police senior sergeant Steve Samuels says it was actually a group of students who had thrown a lit firecracker into a bin. Town manager Amanda Kinzett is aware of the inci- dent and has been warning businesses to be aware of rub- bish bins as a potential source of fires. Fire Service communi- cations shift manager Jaron Phillips says four fire trucks attended the scene in One- hunga which included a haz- ardous materials unit. The officers who attended weren t able to confirm the source of the explosion. Cornwall Park District School also suffered damage to one of its classrooms early last week and the case is being treated as arson. Fire Service senior com- municator Dallas Ramsay says firefighters were called to the school after the smoke alarm was set off by fire- works. No fire was found on arrival but she says one had already been extinguished in a classroom by a teacher. School principal Janine Irvine says those responsible gained access through a win- dow of a year 6 classroom. It s being treated as arson, a police investigation is under way. We re cleaning up, it s taken the wall linings off and there is smoke damage. The class has had to be relocated. Another fire was dis- covered shortly after 2am last Thursday in a wheelie bin near a parked car on Great North Rd, which is being treated as suspicious.
