A fire has severely damaged a house and garage in Te Horo, south of Otaki.
Fire communications received a call about 2.40pm to say a garage was well alight and fire crews from Otaki, Waikanae and the Te Horo rural crew all attended.
There was nobody in the house at the time and fire investigators are still at the rural Derham Rd address establishing what started it.
Several vehicles in the garage have also been destroyed by the fire.
