Firefighters are at the scene of a house fire in Westport.

A Fire Service spokesman said a fire had broken out in a bedroom at a Peel St house around 4.50am.

By the time fire crews arrived the fire had quickly spread throughout the single-storey home.

There were a number of people inside the home but there were no reports of injuries.


Just five minutes earlier Temuka firefighters were called to a caravan fire at the Temuka Holiday Park.

The spokesman said it was initially feared people were inside the caravan however a search revealed it was unoccupied.

Fire safety officers will be returning to the camping ground this morning to investigate the cause of the blaze.
