12.58pm: Firefighters remain at the site of a large scrub fire in Manawatu.

The fire is out - but the rural fire service will keep an eye on hot spots, and make sure the fire doesn't re-ignite.

At its height the fire on Kellow Road in Himatangi covered 150 hectares.

Two other fires nearby have been extinguished, but firefighters will monitor a scrub fire in Palmerston North for the rest of the day.
