A large fire has destroyed a home in one of Auckland's largest regional parks.
Fire services were alerted to the blaze on Beach Rd, Long Bay at around 4:45pm.
Six fire trucks initially attended the scene at Long Bay Regional Park on the North Shore but they quickly called for back-up as the fire got further out of control. Ten fire crews ended up battling the blaze.
The park was packed with holiday-goers when the fire started but no one was injured.
It has now been extinguished, but it will be monitored overnight in case it flares up again. The cause of the blaze is now being investigated.
