A house has been destroyed by a ferocious fire in a West Auckland suburb overnight.
Several fire crews and emergency services were called to a property on Gwendoline Ave, in Te Atatū Peninsula, just after midnight.
A northern fire communications spokesman said they received multiple calls to the blaze - which at its height, was categorised as a second alarm fire.
Seven fire trucks were called to the scene and the blaze was brought under control at 12.38am, the spokesman said.
