7:19 am on 29 October 2014

A community hall near Tauranga went up in flames last night and the fire is being treated as suspicious.

The Fire Service was alerted to the blaze at the Papamoa Hall, off State Highway 2 about 6pm.

They say the hall was well alight by the time a crew arrived and another four fire engines had to be called to help.

A fire investigator will return to the scene this morning.
