Grease fire damages Southwest Greensburg kitchen

Monday, May 27, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

A grease fire just after 8 p.m. Sunday caused costly damage to a residence in Southwest Greensburg, according to the fire chief.

A man was using grease to cook french fries in a pan when the fire started in the kitchen at 532 Alexander Street and spread to the walls and ceiling, said Bill Wright Jr., Southwest Greensburg Fire Department chief.

Four people escaped the house without injury, Wright said. Firefighters contained the blaze to the kitchen, but Wright estimated the loss at between $8,000 and $10,000.
