Conservation Department lights fires: causes $40,000 damage

The Department of Conservation has destroyed fences, shelterbelts and part of a kiwifruit orchard on a training exercise, causing
$40,000 worth of damage. Apparently exercises in controlled burning are essential for training, according to DOC managers.

I`m sure the training would have gone better if they put out the fire with gasoline and called the Fire Brigade.
