A Kaikohe home was engulfed in flames tonight, as firefighters worked for close to an hour to contain the blaze on Orrs Rd.

Two crews were called to the 40 metre by 20m house at 10.38pm.

The fire has now been contained and a specialist fire investigator will be called to the scene shortly.

All of the home's occupants are accounted for and no one was injured as a result of the fire, a spokesman said.
