The food block at Morrinsville College has been evacuated this afternoon after reports of a fire.

Northern Fire Communications shift manager Jaron Phillips said fire had been reported after a flourescent light blew just after 1pm today.

"Fire crews are investigating a fire in the ceiling cavity, it doesn't appear to be too major but the food block has been evacuated as a precaution," he said.

One fire crew remains at the scene.
