NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 31/01/2017

Three homes are under threat in Hawke's Bay as fire crews and a helicopter battle a bush fire.

The blaze has burnt through 5ha, including powerlines and poles, on Dartmoor Road in Dartmoor, a Fire Service spokeswoman says.

Seven fire appliances and four water tanks from three rural brigades are being used to fight the fire, which broke out about midday on Tuesday.

The fire spokeswoman said it was too early to say whether the blaze was under control or not.

The area is inland from Napier.
