Fridge firm appeals Tamahere blaze sentence

MOBILE Refrigeration Specialists, the fridge firm fined in court last month, following the Icepak Coolstore fire in Tamahere, New Zealand, has appealed its sentence.
The firm was fined $56,200 and ordered to pay $175,000 to the injured firefighters and their families, when it was sentenced in Hamilton District Court on December 15.

In court, Mobile Refrigeration accepted it had failed to comply with the required safety standards at the time of the fatal fire in 2008, where a fireman died.

Following the firm's appeal, its sentence has been on hold since December 24.

The firefighters concerned fear Icepak Coolstores will also appeal its sentence. Icepak Coolstores was fined $37,200 and ordered to pay $95,000 reparation to the victims. Its md Wayne Grattan was fined $30,000.
