Fire and Emergency (FENZ) crews were on site within seven minutes of receiving a call to an Alexandra home this afternoon (June 18).

Two appliances from Alexandra and a tanker from Dunstan were dispatched to a kitchen fire on Larch Cr at 1.07pm.

FENZ shift manager Simon Lyford said the fire had spread into the ceiling and a second alarm was raised, meaning a crew from Omakau were called.

“The fire was extinguished with a fire extinguisher . . . and there are no reports of injuries.”
