A naked surprise

A naked woman in the back of a camper van was a surprise sight for Tauranga fire fighters turning out to investigate a road side fire on Thursday evening.

The smoke reported by a passing motorist, was from the cooker on which the couple were cooking a barbecue in the roadside area beside the Wairoa River.

“He was cooking dinner, she was butt naked,” says Tauranga senior station officer Len Sabin.

The four fire fighters had a word with the couple about rural fire restrictions and left. 


Where there's smoke ...

Where's there's smoke somebody just loves to dial 111. In this case I suspect the 'concerned motorist' could have easily confirmed there was no risk, in addition to providing assistance if actually required!

that's hillarious

Are we all jealous that she was probably quite cool and comfortable? I wouldn't do it but am sure she was feeling great!

Was this a case of freedom campers playing with a naked flame?
