A shed was destroyed by fire on Wednesday night on Patea's Ohine Rd.
The Patea Fire Brigade and Rural Fire Service attended the incident at 11pm and although they were able to save the neighbouring house, the shed was already well ablaze.
Principal rural fire officer Nigel Dravitzki said it appeared the shed fire may have been caused by embers from a nearby controlled burnoff of pine trees. The fire is being investigated.
