Fire crews fought to contain a liquid glass spill at an Auckland glass plant on 18 February 2009. Around 50 firefighters and 11 appliances attended O-I New Zealand, formerly known as ACI Glass Packaging, in Penrose. Fire communications spokesman Jaron Phillips said the glass leaked from a furnace at the factory. He said firefighters used water to try to cool the furnace and form a crust over the molten glass.
