HAMILTON, Mich. — A mother and a daughter escaped with a baby from their house after the kitchen caught on fire late Wednesday afternoon in Allegan County.
Hamilton Fire Department Chief Dale Haverdink tells FOX 17 there were no injuries.
It’s a single-story, ranch-style house. The fire broke out around 4:20 p.m., at 3702 – 48th Street, near Lincoln Road. Crews from the Overisel and Saugatuck fire departments assisted Hamilton firefighters.
“It was caused by overheated grease”, says Haverdink, who estimates damages were between $30,000 and $40,000. He says the fire was contained to the kitchen.
The fire was brought under control in less than an hour, according to county dispatchers.
