A mother and her two young children managed to escape a fire that "extensively damaged" their Greymouth home.

Emergency services were called to the blaze on Tasman St, in the southern suburb of Karoro, about 7.43pm.

A Fire Service spokesman said trucks were sent from Greymouth, Cobden and Dobson volunteer fire stations.

The fire was not being treated as suspicious, he said.

Greymouth deputy chief fire officer Graeme O'Dea said all persons were accounted for and out before fire crews arrived.

No one was injured.

O'Dea said the fire caused about 50 per cent damage to the house.

Fire Safety are to investigate the blaze.
