Bus stops closed after large Wellington house fire threatens neighbours

Firefighters were called to a "well involved" fire at a house in Wellington this morning which spread to the roof of a neighbouring property.

The fire on Duncan Terrace in Kilbirnie broke out just before noon, and has been extinguished, but not before causing some damage to the house next door.

MetLink this afternoon said several bus stops on Kilbirnie Crescent are out of action until further notice due to fears over the stability of the structure.

There were no reports of injuries and everyone managed to evacuate.

The closed bus stops are 7223, 7222, 6222 and 6223.
