Firefighters have doused a blaze on Upper Queen St in Auckland this afternoon.

Ruru said it's believed the fire started in a transformer cable in the basement of the building.

The building had been evacuated and there have been no reports of injuries.

A resident said he could no longer see smoke or fire coming from the building.
