Houses in Waimauku, northwest of Auckland, have been evacuated after a truck carrying gas cylinders rolled.

The truck crashed onto its side on State Highway 16 with its load of 192 liquefied petroleum gas cylinders now spilled out across the road, a Fire Service spokesman says.

Emergency services have closed the road and evacuated nearby houses as a precaution.

Ambulance staff treated the driver of the truck.
