A fire which blocked a section of Dickson Road in Papamoa on Tuesday night is said to be the result of a kitchen fire.

Fire and Emergency New Zealand shift manager Paul Radden says the incident happened just before 6pm.

“We received reports of a kitchen fire at a property on Dickson Road.

“Two appliances were at the scene for around an hour and a half while they contained the blaze.”

A caller to the 0800 SUNLIVE news hotline says Dickson Road was closed for a time between Douglas and Alexander Ave.

Powerco were also seen at the scene by the witness at the time of the call.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
