A fire engine was called into action in Auckland yesterday afternoon to boost a police investigation into an injured party-goer.

An officer was hoisted up to a Mt Eden balcony so he could examine it for fingerprints.

The above-ground dusting at a building on the corner of Mt Eden and Esplanade Rds was where a man was found injured on Friday night.

A police spokeswoman said they were investigating after the man was found on the footpath "with a number of injuries, mostly broken bones".

"Our inquiries found that there had been a party at the property and whilst we're just concluding the investigation, we're confident that there were no suspicious circumstances," she said.

"We have interviewed the person concerned."
