The Greerton Fire Brigade attended a house fire at a single-storey home in Hynds Rd tonight.

A Fire communciations spokesperson said the fire service was called to the property about 4.45pm following a report of a fire which started in the garage.

The spokesperson said there were no reports of injuries but the small fire, which appears to have started in the bedroom area of the garage, caused some smoke and heat damage.

"The exact cause of the fire is still being investigated," he said.

A Bay of Plenty Times staff member at the scene said there was no signs of smoke or damage visible from the roadway when he arrived at the scene.
