One person has been confirmed dead after an early morning fire gutted a Nelson home.

Two people were missing originally on Wednesday morning, and the other has been accounted for, police say.

"Given the severity of the fire, the process of identification could take days to complete."

Six fire crews tackled the blaze on Main Road, behind the Elim Christian Centre, in the suburb of Stoke around 4am on Wednesday, a Fire Service spokesman says.
