Te Puke sawmill fire

Firefighters were called to a fire at a Te Puke sawmill yesterday.

A Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesperson says emergency services were called to a report of smoke coming from Pukepine Sawmill on Jellicoe Street just before midday.

When firefighters arrived a small amount of smoke could be seen.

The smoke was reportedly coming from a small pile of sawdust that had been smouldering.

No one was injured.
