Concerns raised repeatedly before Christchurch scrap metal fire

From Checkpoint, 5:24 pm on 18 August 2022

People who live near a scrap metal yard that went up in flames in Christchurch last night say they had repeatedly raised concerns about crushed cars at the site.

The blaze broke out at National Steel in Woolston, sending up a huge plume of potentially toxic smoke and forcing some from their homes.
