Three people have been treated for smoke inhalation after fire engulfed a large Auckland home today.

The blaze tore through the two-storey Roberts Rd home in Glenfield just before 11am.

A Fire Service spokesman said it was well ablaze when four crews arrived at the North Shore property after multiple calls to emergency services.

Three people suffered smoke inhalation and needed to be treated by medics at the scene.

The property was left extensively damaged by the holiday morning blaze.
