KAIMAUMAU EVACUATION: Praying for our whanau and friends in Kaimaumau to be safe. Residents in the Far North township of Kaimaumau are evacuating overnight as a scrub fire in Waiharara has spread "faster than anticipated".

The majority of residents are being accommodated at Waiharara School, with Ngai Takoto also making its marae available.
