Nearly 10 fire crews have been called to a small bush fire north of Auckland.

Emergency crews were alerted to the fire engulfing pine trees in Helensville just before 1pm on Saturday.

A spokesman says the fire isn't likely to get out of control, despite the breeze.

A base has been set up at a local rugby club, and no structures or lives are in danger.
