A woman in her 60s has been taken to hospital with burns from a fire in Kaipara this morning.

She is currently in a stable condition at Middlemore Hospital.

Fire and ambulance services were called to the rural home north of Auckland this morning.

The homeowner at the Kaipara address said the fire "wasn't anything of note", despite earlier reports of an explosion.


She described it as "just a garden fire".

Middlemore Hospital's media spokeswoman said the injured woman was "fine" and waiting to see specialists.
