Fire at Taupo sawmill

Fire crews from across the Bay of Plenty region are tackling a set of fires at a Taupo sawmill.

Fire communications shift manager Steve Smith said there were six crews at Tenon, on Centennial Dr, Rotokawa. Three are from from Taupo and three from Rotorua.

The fire was first reported at 5.45pm.

Mr Smith said at 6.45pm that there were "smouldering seats" of fire within the sawmill.

"The brigades are working to locate and extinguish these," he said.

"There are no injuries and no idea as to what caused the fire at this stage."

The fire would be investigated.
