The boys at the Waihi Volunteer Fire Service went from relax mode to full on this week. Things heated up with call outs to pesky fireworks incidents.

A grass fire last Wednesday, a controlled burn off just past the cemetery on SH2 Thursday, a bonfire at Clarke Street on Saturday and then several callouts on Sunday kept the service busy.

A motorcyclist ended up with broken bones after he collided with a fence and a young man learnt a lesson about overtaking and how it shouldn't be done. His decision making behind the wheel caused spectacular consequences.
