Emergency services have been kept busy in West Auckland this morning, with firefighters extinguishing two blazes and police dealing to a call-out nearby.

A Fire and Emergency New Zealand (Fenz) spokesman said they were called to a house fire in Kelston at 6.39am.

The two-story house on Sabulite Rd was ablaze when firefighters arrived and a second alarm was used to call more firefighters to the scene.

While driving to the house fire, one of the crews noticed a jeep engulfed in flames about 500m away on Glenview Rd.

The Fenz spokesman said there was a fire investigator at the scene of the house fire, who would investigate if the nearby vehicle fire was related.

One person was being checked for smoke inhalation following the house fire, he said.

A Kāinga Ora, formerly Housing New Zealand, spokesperson said they were "helping the tenant at this time to ensure they are housed and supported".

Meanwhile, a police spokeswoman said they received a report that someone was being threatened with firearms at an address on Sabulite Rd.

Police arrived at 6.10am and upon checking no firearms were found, she said.

While police were conducting inquiries to establish the circumstances, she said they did not believe this morning's events were linked.
