A fire that has consumed a house on Friday night in Welcome Bay also enveloped four cars parked nearby.

“Four cars are totally written off,” says a SunLive reporter at the scene on Sunday.

Police and fire emergency services were advised at 9.20pm on Friday that a house was on fire on Keam Way in Welcome Bay.

“Everyone was out of the house, and the house was well-involved,” says a Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesperson.

Fire fighters attended the fire overnight ensuring that areas were damped down.

“The entire house has burnt to the ground, nothing is left,” says a SunLive reporter.

“All nearby properties were not affected by the fire and the fire crews did a good job to protect nearby structures.”

A member of the Welcome Bay Lions has met with the family who lost their possessions in the house fire.

Many Welcome Bay people are wanting to help the family, and a post on the Welcome Bay Noticeboard on Facebook outlines how they can do that.
