A Maysville home was damaged in a fire Wednesday morning.

Maysville Fire Chief Kevin Doyle said his department received a call around 9:53 a.m. to respond to a house fire in the 600 block of Wood Street.

Upon arrival, firefighters found a fire had broken out in the kitchen area of the one-story house. They were able to contain the fire to the kitchen. However, there was damage to the ceiling and attic and water damage in other rooms, according to Doyle.

“We were able to contain the fire within about 10 minutes,” Doyle said. “It stayed in the kitchen, but other rooms had a lot of water damage.”

According to Doyle, the fire is believed to have been started by the oven in the kitchen.

No one was home at the time of the fire.

“There was no one home when the first started,” he said. “No one was injured. A passerby, possibly a neighbor, saw the smoke and called it in.”

The scene was cleared by 11 a.m., according to Doyle.

The Maysville Fire Department was assisted at the scene by the Maysville Police Department, Kentucky Utilities and the Maysville Utility Company.

According to Rebecca Cartmell, with the American Red Cross, the local Red Cross will be assisting the family with their needs.
