Police are talking to two men in relation to a fire that broke out on top of Mt Eden, in Auckland, overnight.

Ten fire trucks were called to the crater at 2:30am this morning to battle the blaze, which locals say was started by fireworks.

Due to the dry conditions, wind and a lack of water it took the fire service several hours to get the fire under control.

The fire spread over 200 square metres and could be smelt as far away as Devonport.
