Fire department responds to kitchen fire in city
The Fredericksburg Fire Department responded to a fire Saturday afternoon on Meade Court, in the Braehead subdivision.
The fire started in the kitchen on the lower level of the split-level home, Deputy Fire Chief Mike Jones said.
It started on the stove and the occupant hit it with a fire extinguisher and water, but the house is full of smoke, he said.
There were no injuries to civilians or firefighters, he said.
There is a fair amount of damage to the lower level of the house, but the upper level seems to be OK, he said.
The fire department is still on the scene.
