Ballantynes Fire

In 1947,on the 18th of November there was a big fire at Ballantynes. This is important event in Canterbury history because 41 people died.


At 3:31 the fire started in the cellar.One of the salesman was told by an woman employee there was smoke coming up the stairs.They made a 2 calls to the fire brigade one at 3.31 and another at about 
3.45.The fire brigade arrived at 3.47.A civic Funeral was held at an Anglican Church on the 23 of November 1947.


In 1854 Ballantynes was founded by Mr Davidson and purchased by John Ballantyne in 1872.In 1883 A Timaru branch was opened Then it moved to its current place in Timaru in 1913.


Ballantynes was badly damaged in the 2011 earthquake.But no one died in Ballantynes.They close the store but reopened it on the 29th of October 2011 after many $1000's we're spent modernizing the building.


The Ballantynes fire was one of the worst fires in NZ history but they have rebuilt and still got a very nice and successful store.

On the 29th of May 2014 the year 6's of Oaklands school went on a Rebuild tour

I really enjoyed the rebuild tour.

On the Friday the 6th of June I had my first game of winter sport

We played at Nunweek Park.My team lost 10-nil but we played really good.I was right forward in the first half and left forward in the second half. I didnt actually change postions I changed from left to right because at half time we changed direction.
