Fire damages Mount Wellington home

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 29/05/2017

Firefighters have quelled a blaze that threatened a home in Auckland's Mount Wellington.

The garage of the large, single-storey villa on Barrack Road was well ablaze by the time four trucks and 16 firefighters arrived at about 11.30am on Monday.

No one was reported to be inside at the time, a Fire Service spokesman said.

Senior station officer John Roberts told reporters at the scene crews had managed to contain the fire largely to the home's garage, partly thanks to alarms throughout the house.

He said it appeared the fire was electrical and an investigation into the cause was being carried out.
