The request was successful.

From: Alan Thompson

Dear Fire and Emergency New Zealand,

On the 6th of January 2020 a significant vegetation fire occurred in a forest near Tangoio (Te Upoko Region). The fire ignited around 11:40am burning through some 400 ha of pine forest and associated slash.

Under the provisions of the Official Information Act I request a detailed breakdown of the costs that FENZ incurred in controlling and supressing the Tangoio Fire.

Yours faithfully,
