A large fire at a property in south Auckland has been successfully brought under control, with no injuries.
The fire service was alerted to the Manurewa blaze just before midday. Three crews were sent to the Tawa Crescent property.
Video of the fire shot by neighbour Alex Carter showed flames leaping from the house's roof, billowing dark smoke across the sky. The sound of the wind is punctuated with a young girl's screams.
No one was hurt, and an investigator is now trying to determine the cause.
The fire is not being treated as suspicious.
