A Western Bay of Plenty home has been razed by fire this evening.

Firefighters were called to the blaze on Arawa Road, in Pongakawa, around 6.30pm to find the single storey dwelling completely engulfed in flames.

Su Mars, who lives on Arawa Road, is calling on people to help donate items to replace what was lost in the house fire.

"Donations are wanted. Our lovely young neighbours house has gone up in flames.

"They are all ok, but lost nearly everything due to fire and smoke damage."

Su says the couple has two little ones - a baby girl about four-months-old and a two-year-old boy.

"If you have any baby clothes, toys, kitchenware, furniture etc you could donate please taken them to Think Water in Te Puke, who will pass them on.

Su says the fire crews are still at the scene of the fire.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
