Ten fire engines and two helicopters are attempting to bring a large scrub fire northwest of Auckland under control.

Up to six homes north of Helensville have been evacuated as a precaution due to smoke from the blaze, Fire Service spokesman Scott Osmond says.

He said the fire had flared among pine trees on West Coast Road and had not yet been brought under control.
