Firefighters blame north Albany fire on unattended stove

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Firefighters warn residents to be careful when they're cooking inside their kitchen.

They say unattended food on the stove started a fire at this home in the 500 block of South Harding Street this morning.

The resident was able to put out some of the fire. Firefighters used fans, and opened windows to help ventilate the house.

"Make sure if you leave your kitchen to turn your stove off or don't start cooking until you know you can stay in and watch your food," said Battalion Chief Arthur Dyer.

He says the stove, part of the kitchen ceiling, and a cabinet were damaged.

No one was injured.
