Firefighters are currently on scene at a Waihi property where white powder has been found.

Fire and emergency northern communications shift manager Daniel Nicholson says they are investigating a container that has some sort of white powder in it.

“We’re unable to confirm what it is at this stage.

“We are just waiting for our hazmat appliance to arrive from Greerton.”

Daniel couldn’t confirm if the substance was suspicious or not.

A police spokesperson says the box containing the powder has been removed from the address.

"There was no risk to the public and there were no evacuations."
