Interim Fire Chief David Kimbrell says the fire started around 2:00 at 3011 Buice Lane. He says the woman who lives in the home left grease on the stove to tend to her baby, and when she returned a fire had spread.

"It extended up into the cabinets," Kimbrell said. "And across the ceiling of the kitchen."

No one was injured.

Kimbrell says the damage is estimated at $5,000.
