Invercargill firefighters are battling a blaze in north Invercargill after a garage fire spread to a house and macrocarpa hedge this evening.
Fire service southern communications duty shift manager Brent Dunn said the fire service was called to a Bainfield road address, near Waihopai, to control a garage fire at 8.30pm.
By the time firefighters arrived at the scene, the garage was well ablaze and extra help was called on, he said.
Three pumps and two tankers, on from Wallacetown, are on site.
The cause of the fire was unknown at this stage and fire investigators would assess the scene tomorrow.
