Firefighters have successfully extinguished a large house fire in Tawa.
Six fire crews were called to the blaze on Rewa Tce, a Fire Service spokeswoman said. The fire was described as "well involved" when the fire engines arrived at the two-storey house just before 3pm.
No one was at the property when it caught alight.
Police temporarily blocked off the road at Essex St while the fire was fought.
