A section of Dickson Road is closed in Papamoa as firefighters deal with a situation.
A caller to the 0800 SUNLIVE news hotline says the road is closed between Douglas and Alexander Ave.
"I'm not sure what the fire guys are doing but Powerco is at the scene as well.
"There were three fire trucks originally, but one has since left. I was heading to my sisters for dinner and had to go another way around."
