NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 5 days ago Sean Martin

An investigation is under way into a large fire at a Taupo timber yard.

It took nearly six hours for firefighters to completely extinguish the blaze which broke out at New Zealand Timber Packaging on Manuka Street at about 8.30pm on Monday.

No injuries were reported but the fire engulfed several structures and nearby scrub, a Fire Service spokesman said.

Eight fire appliances were called in from as far away as Rotorua during the blaze.

Investigators are expected on the scene on Tuesday morning.
