Factory Fire

A fire in a plastic factory was discovered early this morning by a worker after finding flames and thick black smoke filling the factory at Flexdrive in New Gisborne.
Fire fighters arrived just after 5:30am and were able to enter the building wearing breathing apparatus and extinguish the fire.
A machine that produces plastic parts was the source of the fire.
Fire crews from Gisborne, Riddells Creek, and Sunbury attended.
