A two-storey house has been severely damaged in a fire that closed part of State Highway 1 in Blenheim.

The Fire Service was alerted around 7pm on Monday and eight crews spent two hours putting out the blaze.

A spokesman said firefighters have remained at the scene to ensure the fire doesn't flare up again.

There was no one in the house at the time.

The incident led to the closure of SH1 between Lybster Street and Alabama Road.
