A man has been killed after a fire at a property in the Hamilton suburb of Maeroa.

Police were called to the Ridout St property just after 10am but said initial enquiries indicate the fire was not suspicious. 

The fire appears to have occurred behind the house.

Police were at the scene interviewing people inside the house, down a right-of-way, which has been cordoned off.

The death has been referred to the coroner.
