South Whidbey Fire/EMS responded to a cooking-related fire Monday night, according to fire department officials.
Deputy Chief Terry Ney said firefighters responded to the small blaze at an Evening Glory Court residence around 5:39 p.m. that evening.
The homeowners were using a hot plate to heat up food in a downstairs room of the house where the fire occurred.
“We were able to get it knocked down pretty quickly,” Ney said of the blaze, which was minor and did not cause injuries.
The flames were extinguished in about 10 minutes, but fire personnel stayed on the scene for an additional two hours to assess the rest of the home.
There was some damage to the back wall and lower room of the house where the fire happened, but nothing major.
