Two people have been injured, including one seriously, after an early-morning house fire in Whakatu near Hastings.
Firefighters arrived to find the home "well alight" about 12.20am on Friday, a Fire and Emergency NZ spokesperson said.
He said there were occupants home at the time, but "everyone got out".
A spokesperson for St John said two ambulances responded and treated one patient in a serious condition, and another in a moderate condition.
