One person is dead after a house was destroyed by a fire in rural Hawke's Bay.

A 111 call alerted the Fire Service to the blaze yesterday evening, Fire Service central communications shift manager David Meikle said.

When the Bay View Volunteer Fire Bridge arrived at 5.30pm, the house on Darky's Spur Rd in Tangoio, 20km north of Napier, had been largely destroyed.

"It has been pretty much burned to the ground," Meikle said.

The remains of a person were found inside.

Fire Safety officers and police are at the scene of the fire to investigate the cause of the fire.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
