A fire investigator and police will this morning begin their investigation into a suspicious house fire in Wellington last night.
Ten fire engines were called to the scene on Austin Street in Mount Victoria at around 9.20pm, a Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesperson told 1 NEWS.
The blaze at the two-storey property has since been put out, but a neighbouring home was also damaged in the fire.
No one was injured.
It comes after a suspicious fire damaged multiple properties in the nearby suburb of Newtown earlier this week.
