Firefighters are battling a large blaze at a marae in northern Manawatu.

Six fire appliances and several tankers were called to the fire at the Taumata O Te Ra marae on Hastings Street in Halcombe, 13km northwest of Feilding, just after 8am, central fire communications shift manager Mike Wanoa said.

No-one was injured.

Firefighters were still attacking the fire at 9.30am. It was not clear immediately if it was the meeting house or other buildings on fire.
