A person has died in a house fire in Northland.
Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) attended the blaze in Taemaro Rd, Hihi just after 10pm on Monday.
A FENZ spokesperson said before crews arrived, the only person in the house was pulled out by neighbours.
CPR was done - but they could not be revived and died at the scene, the spokesperson said.
A fire investigator will attend the scene on Tuesday morning but it is not being treated as suspicious.
