Apparently there was some sort of fire down at that hacking conference in Wellington #kiwicon!
 
There has been one arrest and one of the guys is going to post some pics as they get a change. One guy is gettin questioned by the police, and there has been one arrest so far.


This is all what I have heard from Twitter, so I will keep you in the loop about what is actually happening.

I heard that some idiot had setup like some sort of shrine and it caught on fire, but I don't understand why there are all the police there.

This is what I can see they have. http://incidents.fire.org.nz/Cen20091128.html

There are also reports that Jessica Alba is there for some reason, not sure why, but this is all coming live off Twitter now.

No seriously, she was there to talk about online social media, and how twitter can be improved by you fame or something - sort of a celebrity expert, I am telling you, I don't have all the info, but this is all over twitter at the moment.

I can confirm that Jessica Alba wasn't directly involved with started those fires. The person that was arrested was a male about 30 I heard? Apparently he is a performer so the police said the media need to stay away, and that they are not allowed to report on it.

I heard it didn't related to the man with name suppression who had that incident with that 16 yo girl.
