Firefighters head back to their appliance after extinguishing a fire that began in the kitchen of a Dunedin home.

A Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesman said they were called to a kitchen fire in Tomahawk Rd, Ocean Grove, about 12.40pm yesterday.

The fire had spread into a wall and crews from St Kilda and Dunedin Central stations worked to put it out.

The blaze was extinguished and crews had left the scene by 2.25pm, he said.
