Wanaka trio treated after drunken fry-up

  • 01/09/2016

Three late-night drinkers in Central Otago are lucky to be alive after setting their house on fire when they left appliances on following a night on the town.

The trio got their cooking underway when they returned from their night out, but forgot about it and went to bed, leaving it burning in the kitchen.

They were pulled from the blazing building just before 3am on Thursday morning, and treated for smoke inhalation at the scene.
