BUSH FIRE AT TE AROHA
(By Telegraph.—Press Association.)
HAMILTON, This Day. As the result of a fire about 900 acres of heavy native bush and dense forn country has either been completely laid waste, or irreparably damaged at Wairongomai, near Te Aroha. Yesterday afternoon the flames commenced about four miles from tho town, and progressed to within a mile of To Aroha itself. It was the largest outbreak in tho district within memory, and is believed to have originated from the carelessness of blackberry pickers, who had been boiling a billy in the neighbourhood. Many head of cattle had a close call, and great stretches of fencing were destroyed. Only the direction of the wind saved a disastrous conflagration, although serious damage has already been done.
