ELMA, Wash. - Fire District 5 knocked down a kitchen fire yesterday morning that Fire Chief Dan Prater tells us could have been far worse had first responders not acted quickly and tore into the small "attic space" of a mobile home in the 100 block of Hokanson road in Elma. No one was home at the time of the incident. Prater tells us a neighbor reported smoke coming from the home just after 9 yesterday, then kicked in the front door to make sure the home was empty. Fire was contained to the kitchen and dining room with smoke damage throughout the home. Estimated property loss was set as $20,000 for content and a complete loss on the home itself.
Prater said the initial investigation shows that the fire started in the corner of the kitchen, where a new toaster oven had been used earlier that morning prior to everyone leaving for the day.
