TVs explosion risk in Auckland fire

1:33 pm on 23 February 2014

Firefighters in Auckland are damping down potentially explosive old television sets after a fire in Mount Wellington.

Fire crews were called out to Leonard Road on Sunday morning.

The blaze, in a commercial area, has burnt disused cars, TV sets and pallets.

One crew is still at the site, damping down the old televisions, which contain nine-kilogram gas cylinders, and could explode.

Fire investigators are also at the scene.
