Fire services are attending a hedge fire in Te Puna.

Fire communications shift manager Jaron Phillips said they had been at the fire for 8 minutes since 5pm, and the fire on the shelter belt was "well involved".

Police had been requested to close Te Puna Rd.

Power lines had been directly exposed to the fire, so power could be out for residents near by.

Additional crew from Tauranga and Greerton were heading out to the scene.

More to come.
