LYNNWOOD — Firefighters quickly put out a kitchen fire in Lynnwood early this morning, the first of what could be many to come on Thanksgiving.

According to the Lynnwood Fire Department, crews responded to a report of a kitchen fire around 12:30 a.m. at a home in the 4200 block of 188 Street SW. Crews quickly put out the blaze, which was largely relegated to the kitchen.

Three residents in the home were not injured.

Fire crews discovered the fire was a grease fire that started on the stovetop. The resident — who left the kitchen unattended for a brief period — tried to put out the flames with a fire extinguisher, but had to call 911 when it got out of hand, officials said.

Officials believe the blaze caused about $45,000 in damage to the home.

Firefighters in Lynnwood would like to remind citizens to never leave a hot stovetop unattended while cooking on Thanksgiving.
