Monaco House Fire


Fire destroys home near Nelson Airport

Firefighters fought hard to gain control of a fully alight house fire near Nelson Airport that destroyed the home in the evening of 23 March.

Emergency services were alerted to the fire on Grace Street, Monaco just before 7pm on Thursday.

The fire was well out of control when two crews arrived from Nelson sparking a call for back-up from three other crews some from Richmond.

No one was home or injured Fire and Emergency reported.

Firefighters finally gained control of the blaze after a massive amount of smoke drifted over the area and Police were called to assist with traffic control.
