Gang HQ fire inquiry ongoing

THE fire that destroyed the long-established Mongrel Mob headquarters in Wairoa on Sunday night remains under police investigation with no definite cause yet determined.

Fire ripped through the large tin shed in Kaimoana Road on the outskirts of the town at around 6pm.

Police and a specialist fire investigator from Dannevirke began a scene examination yesterday but police said strong winds made it too dangerous for a full examination of the burnt-out building.

Police have indicated an electrical fault may have been involved. The site remains secured as the police investigation continues.
