Firefighters are trying to get control of the flames at a house fire in South Auckland.

The blaze in Coty Place in Clover Park started just before 6am, and shift manager Carren Larking says four fire trucks have been sent.

She says neighbours initially believed the occupants were at home.

But fire crews have confirmed that no one is inside the house.
