NZ: Gulf Harbour Country Club on fire for second time in week, blaze ‘suspicious’

POSTED ON May 22, 2024 @ 3:22 pm

Pictures show the devastation left after a second large fire within a week broke out at an abandoned Auckland country club.

The fire, which caused the Gulf Harbour Country Club clubhouse to collapse on itself, was being treated as suspicious.

Fire and Emergency NZ were called to the scene just before midnight on Tuesday.

At its peak, 17 fire trucks were at the scene and more than 50 personnel.

The building was now a “complete write-off” and crews still had about six hours worth of work ahead of them to fully extinguish the fire.

The blaze was being treated at suspicious and there were “similarities” with Saturday’s fire.

That included “things that aren’t adding up that could make the cause suspicious”.

FENZ group manager Phil Larcombe told Morning Report the fire took a lot of trucks away from responding to weather-related callouts overnight.

A second fire within a week has burnt more of the Gulf Harbour Country Club.
