Fires in Hawke's Bay

HASTINGS, January 21. Stifling smoke, brought by a south-east wind, enveloped the Hastings district this morning, indicating an immense grass or bush fire in close proximity. Telephonic communication, which was obtained with the outlying stations, failed to locate the fire. The most reliable information is from Gwavas (inland from Waipawa) stating that Ashley Clinton is on fire at the foot of the hills. The south-east wfGd at 10 a.m. veered to a boisterous south-wester, probably saving a large portion, of the northern Heretaunga Plains. Great anxiety is felt at all the homesteads.
