Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue were called to the Vintage Senior Housing in Silverdale around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday evening for a structure fire. When they arrived, they found heavy smoke in the third floor hallway in several of the buildings.
Occupants on the third floor were evacuated as a precaution due to the smoke.
Firefighters say a woman had been cooking when she left the room and lost track of time. She returned to the kitchen to find a fire on her stove.
She initially tried to smother the flames with towels before grabbing a dry chemical extinguisher and putting out the fire.
No one was injured in the incident.
