    The fire along the Nuhaka-Opoutama Road between Nuhaka and Mahia, south of Gisborne, is now out

    The fire along the Nuhaka-Opoutama Road between Nuhaka and Mahia, south of Gisborne, is now out


    Fire crews were sent at 10:40 this morning to battle the blaze -- which was caused by falling powerlines in bad weather.

    The fire was burning in vegetation along a river before it was extinguished.

    Two properties were threatened -- however neither was damaged and there have been no injuries

    Police say access in and out of Mahia is limited -- as the Nuhaka-Opoutama Road is blocked.
