A pile of cardboard caught fire outside a Queen St shop in Auckland's CBD on Wednesday night.

One fire appliance was sent to put out the small blaze outside Hallensteins, reported about 9pm.

"It was a pile of cardboard boxes, pretty small," a Fire and Emergency spokesman told NZME.

There were no reported injuries or damage to the clothing store.
