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.
Police, Civil Defence and the Kaimaumau Community Response Group are supporting the evacuation.
