Fire crews have halted their battle with a bushfire north of Hamilton for the night but expect to return to action on Thursday morning.

At least 14 fire crews and three helicopters had been fighting the fire near Ngaruawahia, with emergency services alerted shortly before 5pm.

Northern Fire Communications shift manager Colin Underdown said he was unsure at this stage whether homes were being threatened.
