Firefighters are battling a blaze at Norske Skog’s pulp and paper mill in Kawerau.

Emergency services were called to the Tasman Mill in the Bay of Plenty town about 11.45am on Saturday.

The fire was located on top of a turbine in the mill, and appeared to have started on insulation lagging on a steam pipe, a Fire Service spokesman told NZ Newswire.

Fire crews are continuing to dampen down hotspots.
