Fire crews are a tackling a blaze that's broken out at a Tauranga martial arts gym.

As many as 13 appliances have been called from as far away as Rotorua to fight the fire at the Tauranga MMA Fightclub on Koromiko Street in Judea, the Fire Service said.

Emergency services were called to the scene at about 6am on Saturday and found the building well ablaze when they arrived.

The fire has since been contained to the building.

Despite earlier concerns someone may have been inside, a preliminary search has not found anyone. Further searches are continuing.

Birch Avenue and Koromiko Street have been cordoned off by police.
