Auckland firefighters have had a busy night, with two house fires and a garage blaze - two thought to be deliberately lit.

Fire Service Northern Communications spokesperson Nicole Bernard said firefighters were called to the first fire, on Rotoma Rise, Clover Park, just after 9pm.

Ms Bernard said the house was "well involved" when crews arrived.

No one was injured in the blaze, which was not thought to be suspicious.

In the second incident, crews were called to a small fire in a bedroom at a Leaver Place, Weymouth, address, about 12.17am.

Ms Bernard said firefighters believed the fire was deliberately lit. No one was injured in the blaze.

Later in the morning, crews were called to Jane Cover Avenue, Otahuhu, about 1.30am, where a double garage was ablaze.

The fire was thought to be suspicious.

Fire safety officers will investigate the Leaver Place and Jane Cover Avenue fires today.
