A rural property has burned to the ground in a blaze in South Taranaki.

Fire service communications spokesman Murray Dunbar was unable to confirm reports a person had been found dead inside the property on Okahutiria Rd at Waverley.

Crews were alerted to the blaze by a 111 call but when they arrived the property had already been destroyed.

Specialist fire investigators and police are expected to examine the scene on Tuesday to determine the cause.
