Emergency services are responding to a ship fire at Port Taranaki. The fire is in a shipment of wheat on the Poavosa Wisdom, which arrived from Victoria today. Smoke can be seen coming from the bow of the ship.
A fire engine is parked at the wharf with a ladder extended towards the bow. Five other ships are in port. New Plymouth fire brigades were alerted by port security about 1pm
