Firefighters have spent hours battling a large farmland blaze in Maraenui as it threatened two houses.
Crews were called to the fire, 500m by 80m, off State Highway 35 near Ohupoto Rd about 2.30pm yesterday, a Fire and Emergency NZ spokesman said.
The fire was extinguished and all eight crews left the scene about 9pm. There was no damage to any buildings, he said.
The blaze was near the location where a scrub fire tore through farmland and engulfed three buildings on Tuesday.

Eleven fire crews including water tankers battled that blaze, which started about 2.40pm, for a number of hours before extinguishing it about 6pm on Tuesday.
A hay barn, an implement shed and a cow shed all burnt as a result.
Neither fire threatened any people and there were no injuries.
