A grease fire damaged the kitchen and living room at 3132 1/2 Academy Drive Southeast in Auburn on

Friday afternoon.

The Valley Regional Fire Authority, the first responding units, found smoke and fire damage contained to the kitchen and living room.

The occupant said the fire had started on the stove from overheated oil in a pan. The occupant extinguished the

fire prior to VRFA’s arrival.

Fire department personnel assisted the occupant with smoke removal and checked for fire extension.

The estimated damage

to the structure was $10,000.

REMINDER: Smoke Detectors are vital to early warning of fire conditions. Please make sure all detectors are in good working condition. Extreme caution should be used when oils are being heated up. Be sure to pay attention when heating cooking oils due to the flammability of these liquids.
