Firefighters were this morning battling a large house fire in the Wellington suburb of Newtown.
Emergency services were called to the two-storey building on Coromandel Street just after 8am, central fire communications shift manager Jan Wills said.
Ten appliances were still at the scene, "and will be for some time".
"The house was well involved on arrival," she said.
There were no reports of injuries.
Fire safety officers had been called and they would determine the cause of the fire once it was extinguished, Ms Wills said.
