A transformer has caught fire at the Kinleith Pulp and Paper Mill in the central North Island.

The Fire Service was called to the mill on Friday evening to deal with a fire in a transformer, a spokesman said.

The fire was quickly contained.

"It's nothing," the spokesman said.

The mill has a power plant that generates power using wood waste and also a large power line into it.
