4.15pm Monday 27 December.
Ground crews and heavy machinery are working at three locations in the Kaimaumau / Waiharara area today, with three helicopters on standby.

Incident Controller John Sutton says about 35 people are on the fireground, plus eight machine operators. Heavy smoke has been hampering air operations today, but in other respects the conditions are better than yesterday as the high humidity is reducing the risk of further break-outs from the containment lines.

"Horekau he tangihanga, horekau he uhunga".

A renowned figure and orator of the North, recalls how his tupuna managed an awful epidemic before the Treaty of Waitangi that affected the Far North. One of the areas largely affected in the North was that of Motutangi. It resulted in an inordinate degree of mortality and death amongst the haukāinga and people of that area. The urutā that struck at that time culminated and left very low survival rates.
