Large fire in Remuera, Auckland

A large fire in the Auckland suburb of Remuera is now out.

Police confirmed they were notified of a fire in Chatfield Place shortly after 10.30am.

Several residents have come out into the cul-de-sac to watch firefighters attack the blaze.

A police spokeswoman said officers were not at the scene, at this stage.

“That could change with helping with traffic management,” she said.

A staff member at nearby Cluny Kindergarten, on Victoria Ave, said: “I heard lots of sirens and was wondering what was going on.”

Looking outside towards Chatfield Place, she said the skies were clear blue and there was no hint of smoke.

By 11am, the fire had been extinguished.

Fire and Emergency NZ confirmed firefighters remained at the scene, however, damping down hotspots.
