Large scrub fire on Auckland's west coast

Firefighters are currently battling a large scrub fire on Auckland's west coast.

Fire Service senior communicator Nicole Bernard said the fire on Karekare Road - which leads to the popular Karekare surf beach - was about 20 hectares in size.

Firefighters were first alerted to the blaze about 1.30pm, Ms Bernard said.

Four fire appliances were currently on scene, and another three were on their way.

"The helicopter is responding as well."

Ms Bernard had not had any reports of property being under threat from the fire.

It was too early to say what caused it, she said
