Smoke is billowing from a large fire at a school in the Auckland suburb of Mt Eden this afternoon.

The fire broke out at Auckland Normal Intermediate School earlier this afternoon.

There are at least a dozen fire trucks at the scene.

There is also an ambulance and two police cars.

There is smoke billowing into the air from a building which appears to be a block of classrooms.

Classes have not resumed yet at the school after the summer break.
