Fire crews have been on stand-by to ensure a scrub fire on an Auckland volcano doesn't spread to any homes.
About 10 fire crews have been fighting the blaze on Mt Wellington Domain since about 4pm on Wednesday.
"The guys haven't given us any news about properties in danger," fire communications shift manager Nicole Bernard said.
"But we received a lot of calls from the public and we've had appliances standing by just to be sure."
Ms Bernard says the crews were dampening the fire down by 6.30pm.
