A large scrub fire broke out at Orini yesterday, a rural district between Hamilton and Taupiri, causing fire services to spend hours quelling the flames.
The blaze started at Orini Rd about 2.30pm yesterday.
No buildings were near enough to put anyone in danger and fire services - including three fire trucks and two tankers - had the blaze under control within a few hours.
