Eight people have escaped a Papatoetoe house fire this evening.

Two fire crews were called out to the blaze at 8.40pm and were still at the property doing salvage work at 9.15pm.

An ambulance was at the scene and there had been reports of people suffering from smoke inhalation.

Fire communications shift manager Jaron Phillips said a fire specialist was heading to the scene to investigate the cause of the incident.
