An investigation into a garage fire in Whakatu, Hastings, over the weekend is continuing.
Three fire trucks and two tankers were called to a residential address on Buckingham St at 10.12am on Saturday.
The fire had taken a strong hold and took firefighters about three hours to get under control, Hastings Fire Station senior office Bruce Botherway said.
Some engineering LPG cylinders were involved in the blaze, he said.

Investigators returned to the site later on Saturday to carry out an investigation.
The fire was not being treated as suspicious but the cause had not yet been established.
While there were no injuries to people, a small dog was taken to the vet.
Botherway said the incident was a good reminder about the importance of having working smoke alarms and an escape plan in case of a fire.
