House completely ablaze in Kaikoura

Emergency services were called to attend a house fire in Kaikoura near the Clarence River on State Highway 1 earlier last night.

A fire service spokesman said four trucks attended the scene after receiving a call around 8.30pm.

When crews arrived they found the house completely ablaze.

Fire services were able to bring the fire under control and it was now extinguished.

The spokesman said as he understood it ambulance crews had not attended the scene but he could not confirm if anyone had been inside the house at the time of the fire or whether anyone had been injured.

Police were also at the scene to investigate the cause of the blaze.
