A fire which engulfed a house has been brought under control by fire fighters.

A Bay of Plenty Times reader said the house on Dickson Rd, Papamoa was well alight by the time fire fighters arrived.

"The whole house was ablaze. You don't often see things like that," he said.

A couple of cars on the front lawn appeared to have been scorched as well.

It did not appear anyone was home at the time of the fire, he said.

Earlier, a reporter said a large plume of smoke could be seen from State Highway 2.
