Explosion at unoccupied Auckland house

An explosion has rocked an unoccupied Auckland house, with fire crews battling to put out the flames.

Firefighters were called to the two-storey house in Parnell this afternoon after receiving multiple calls of an explosion at the address, the NZ fire service says.

The house was empty at the time, and no one has been hurt.

Three fire crews are fighting the blaze and Brighton Road is closed to public traffic.

Investigators are on route to determine the cause of the explosion.
