Grease starts stove fire

DULUTH - A pan of grease ignited on a stove, causing a fire in Duluth.

No one was injured in the fire at the Idlewylde Apartments on Boggs Road in Duluth, but three people were displaced when the blaze caused moderate fire and water damage to the kitchen and sent smoke through the rest of the apartment, said Lt. Thomas Rutledge, spokesman for the Gwinnett County Fire Department.

The fire occurred at 7:23 p.m. Monday, Rutledge said. Firefighters had to remove the kitchen cabinets and open the wall to make sure the fire had not spread.
