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.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
