  • 16/07/2015

One person may have been killed in a shed fire on the South Island's West Coast.

Early reports suggested someone may have been caught in a fire that destroyed a shed in Westland, a Fire Service spokesman said.

But he said nothing could be confirmed yet and fire investigators were still on their way.

Police say the fire in Karangarua, south of Fox Glacier, was reported at 3am today and the shed was destroyed by the time it was called in.
