An electricity meter board has been blamed for a fire that destroyed the roof of a Tarata house last night.
Brigades were called to the blaze about 11pm.
Two fire engines from Inglewood, one from Stratford and another from Eltham attended.
An engine from New Plymouth took out extra equipment, senior station officer Steve Dombroski said.
