People inside a sleep-out which caught fire south of Auckland this morning have all been accounted for, a fire service spokesperson says.

Northern Communications shift manager Colin Underdown said crews were called to the blaze, on Whiriwhiri Road, Waiuku, about 8.54am.

On arrival crews found a garage sleep-out "well involved" in fire, he said.

There had been reports people were inside the building, however they have now all been accounted for.

Four trucks were at the scene at the height of the scene.

Mr Underdown said the fire has been extinguished and fire safety officers are investigating.
