The Fire Service attended about 50 calls of flash flooding in West Auckland on Friday evening.

It says the majority of the calls were houses affected by flooding following a downpour of rain between 6pm - 7.30pm.

Shift manager Paul Radden says 14 appliances were sent out to the properties in the Glen Eden and Titirangi areas.

Water was pumped from the properties and large electric squeegies were used to mop up the homes.
