Firefighters were called to the scene of the blaze at Te Kaha, northeast of Opotiki, at about 5.20am on Friday.

Two single-storey homes, about 80m apart, were already engulfed by the time crews arrived, a Fire Service spokeswoman says.

She said investigators were on the scene on Friday morning and were treating the blaze as suspect.
