Firefighters from Mosgiel, Lookout Point and Roslyn fire brigades were called to the house in Green St at 2.53pm, a Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesman said.
"At the time of the call there was believed to be somebody in the house. On arrival they found very quickly that all persons were accounted for.
"The fire was contained to the kitchen and we very quickly contained the fire and put it out."
No details on the extent of the damage, or the cause, were available yesterday.
