A fire has ripped through a tertiary school building in a Kapiti Coast town.
Firefighters found a building at Te Wananga o Raukawa in Otaki well alight after being called out at about 5:15pm today.
Nine trucks were called out to the building which had sustained substantial damage, and were still dampening the site down at 7pm.
No one has been reported injured and it is believed the building was being renovated at the time.
The cause of the fire is still unclear.
