Wellington fire crews are attacking a three-storey house fire at the southern end of the Terrace.

A Fire and Emergency spokesperson told Newshub the fire is in the roof, which poses a risk that it could spread to other homes.

Around seven trucks were called to the home just before 4pm.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area.
