Fire crews have put out a large scrub fire on Auckland's Mt Wellington.

Fire and Emergency NZ said the blaze - which was visible across much of Auckland last night - was fully extinguished by about 9.45pm.

Reports of a fire on the mountain started to come through to authorities just before 7.30pm. At its height, the blaze covered a 60m by 40m area.

Multiple crews were needed at the site as a result.
