GODFREY — A kitchen fire Wednesday at a residence on Piasa Trail caused about $45,000 in damage, according to the Godfrey Fire Department.
The Godfrey Fire Department responded at 10:31 a.m. to a report of a kitchen fire in the 5700 block of Piasa Trail in Godfrey. Upon arrival, Fire Chief Erik Kambarian confirmed a working fire at a split-level residence with light smoke showing. Additional off-duty Godfrey firefighters arrived and the Fosterburg Fire Department moved up to Godfrey Station No. 1 with an engine company.
First-arriving crews confirmed all occupants were out of the structure and located a fire in the kitchen. The fire was quickly knocked down with about 50 gallons of water, preventing the blaze from spreading. Moderate fire damage occurred in the kitchen with light smoke damage throughout the rest of the residence.
There were no injuries.
The initial property and content loss is valued at $45,000. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Twelve Godfrey firefighters responded to the blaze with two engines, one light-rescue vehicle and one chief’s vehicle.
