A large fire took hold of a Dunedin printing business this morning, breaking through the roof and sending smoke billowing through the air.

No one was injured in the blaze, which gutted the Colourtronics design and printing store on Filleul St, East Otago area manager Lawrence Voight said.

The store was empty and secured when the fire broke out about 6.30am.

More than four fire trucks responded and were confronted with a significant blaze which had burst through the store's roof, Voight said.

Gym-goers from the Configures gym next door were understood to have been evacuated.

The fire was now under control and a fire investigator was on the scene.
