The fire at the showgrounds was the largest of several mysterious fires in Palmerston North early on Sunday 15 May 1977. It destroyed the cattle pavilion, which was being used to store wool for Feltex Wools Ltd. The fire destroyed or damaged $1 million worth of wool and razed the $200,000 building.
