THE TOWN OUT OF DANGER, j AUCKLAND, 18th January. The,fire on Te Aroha Mountain is subsiding. On Friday evening a fringe of flame a, mile long advanced slowly down on the town, and was watched by hundreds of people. Huge trees 60ft high were levelled in an imvedibly short time, and the, blaze made when the flames caught the big nikau trees caused groat illuminations. The natural bush and plantations destroyed will tako years to replace. Late on Friday night the heat became intense^ and it continued so yesterday. This, with the dense smoke hanging over the district and town, made existence almost intolerable, but conditions are pleaaanter to-day, and the danger to tho town is passed.
