As many as five students are being treated for smoke inhalation after a chemical fire at Horowhenua College - the second fire in two days.

The Fire Service were called the college in Levin at about 11.30am and are still at the scene.

Spokesman Murray Dunbar said crews had extinguished the fire "and are waiting to identify the chemicals involved."

Dunbar said the incident had been "escalated to second alarm".

Four fire crews from Levin, Otaki and Waitarere Beach were at the incident.

Horowhenua College was also the scene of a fire after a plastic toilet roll holder was set alight yesterday.
