Burning jandal 'nuisance'

Seventeen fire officers were called out to Waimea College at 3.40am yesterday to deal with a flaming jandal.

Richmond Volunteer Fire Brigade station chief Ralph Lonsdale said the jandal had been set on fire deliberately and was "burning furiously".

"We're now waiting for the other jandal to catch fire, wherever it is."

He said the fire was near the tennis courts, and the brigade regarded it as a nuisance fire.

Waimea College associate principal Graeme Smith said this morning that he had not heard anything about it.

The Richmond brigade also attended a vehicle accident in Hope's Main Rd at 2.30pm yesterday.
