Fire caused significant damage to a kitchen at a residence in the 1100 block of Park Avenue this afternoon.

Battalion Chief Richard Cook of the Roanoke Rapids Fire Department said the kitchen was “pretty much destroyed” but the fire was contained quickly. The rest of the house was spared, he said.

Firefighters received the call shortly before 3 p.m. Cook said they witnessed smoke showing through the outside of the house from the ridge vents and overhang.

Firefighters entered through the front door and found fire in the kitchen, which was extinguished within about 10 minutes.

The stove was on when the fire occurred, Cook said. Firefighters are ruling it accidental, he said.

Ten firefighters comprised of stations 1 and 2, as well as off-duty personnel, responded. No one was injured.
