Emergency services are attending a massive house fire in Blenheim.

The blaze on New Renwick Road is sending clouds of smoke high into the sky as firefighters battle to control the flames.

A Fire and Emergency spokesperson told Newshub the fire was "fully involved" upon their arrival at 10:53am.

According to the spokesperson, firefighters needed to call in more tankers as the house is not in a reticulated area so there was not enough water available to fight the fire.

Two crews are currently at the address, accompanied by police. 

The fire is yet to be extinguished.

As far as emergency services are aware, there is no one in the house and no reported injuries.
