Firefighters are battling a grass fire covering in excess of 60 hectares in a rural area of Hawke's Bay.

Firefighters were called to the fire on Raukawa Rd in Raukawa at 11.30am on Friday.

No properties are in danger and there are no reports of injuries.

The fire spread rapidly and it was raised to a fourth alarm.

Three helicopters and crews from Napier, Hastings and rural areas are fighting the fire.

"The last we heard it was about 30 per cent under control," says Fire Service shift manager David Meikle.
