The lower floor concrete slab is complete and the concrete block walls are being built. Auckland Council property group manager Ian Wheeler says no major issues have cropped up at the Howick reserve. ''The mid-floor concrete slab and the upper floor front wall concrete blockwork is expected to be completed before Christmas. ''We are working with Te Roopu Awhina, local schools and cultural advisers on an artwork for the site. ''We are also working with the Howick Local Board to look at the feasibility of a possible redesign of the exterior pathway and ramp down to the lower level.'' The building project is due for completion in April 2011. Thrown in crash Two women were taken to Middlemore Hospital last Thursday after being thrown from a car during a crash. The accident happened at about 1.30pm on Ormiston Rd. Three other passengers in the rental car escaped injury when the car rolled and landed on a grass verge. There were no other vehicles involved and speed is not believed to be a factor. The road was closed for two hours as the police serious crash unit investigated. Man burnt in house fire Fire ravaged: The property on Meadway, Sunnyhills, where a suspected P lab explosion set the house on fire. Photo: KRISTINA RAPLEY By KRISTINA RAPLEY SIGNS TO LOOK OUT FOR Some of the signs to look out for if you suspect a P lab is operating include chemical smells, exhaust fans running at odd times, a lot of rubbish around the outside of the property and people visiting at unusual times. Blacked-out windows or curtains drawn all day are other tell-tale signs. Contact local police or call the anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800-555-111. Also visit www.police.govt.nz/ services/drugs/identify-clan-labs for more information. POLICE are investigating a suspected P lab after a fire at Sunnyhills. Neighbouring residents had suspicions about illegal activity at the property and authorities suspect the drug methamphetamine or P was being produced there. Howick fire station officer Graham Grace says the two- storey rental property was well alight when firefighters were called to the blaze on Meadway at noon. The sole occupant jumped from a second-storey window to escape and was found injured at the back of the property. He was in very poor con- dition, quite serious really,'' Mr Grace says. He had deep lacerations and burns on his arms, shoulders and back and was clearly in shock.'' He was seen by medics and taken to Middlemore Hos- pital where he has been having surgery for his burns and injuries received when he jumped out of the window. Mr Grace says it was immediately clear to them that it was a P lab because of all the equipment around. Police, hazardous sub- stance advisers and four other fire trucks responded. Police and firefighters went through a decontamination shower before leaving the site. The upstairs bedrooms were extensively damaged and there was smoke damage throughout the bottom storey. Mr Grace says the number of P-lab fires in east Auck- land suburbs appears to have increased. We know some people are stupid, but we've just got to put that aside and get on with the job. Our job was to get him out, get him to first aid and put the fire out.'' Neighbours say they often wondered if there was some- thing going on at the property because there were lots of people coming and going all the time. Police are encouraging people to report suspicious behaviour in their neighbour- hood. Detective senior sergeant Dave Glossop of Howick police says they'll be speaking to the injured man when he's able to be interviewed.
