A house was entirely consumed by fire in Paengaroa last night.

Emergency services responded to multiple calls regarding the fire at a Showground Road address, at around 7.30pm.

A fire service spokesperson says the structure was fully engulfed in fire when they arrived at the scene.

The fire was extinguished, and is not considered suspicious.

However, a fire investigator was called, and is expected to be returning to the scene this morning.
