Massive Blaze Hits New Zealand's Auckland
Four buildings were on fire and several people unaccounted for in a massive blaze that was tearing through properties in central Auckland on Saturday night. More than 60 firefighters were battling the fire that's threatening neighboring properties on West End Road in Westmere, Radio New Zealand reported.
A fire service spokesperson, Jaron Phillips, said there were unconfirmed reports of people inside the burning houses, but they don't know how many or which buildings they may be inside.
Phillips said a van parked near the properties was also on fire and has been rocked by several explosions since firefighters arrived.
