No one was hurt in a kitchen fire in Daytona Beach Friday, but damage to the home was estimated at around 75-thousand dollars. Lt. Larry Stoney, Daytona Beach Fire Department spokesperson, said firefighters were dispatched to the 900 block of Millard Court early Friday afternoon and found heavy smoke coming from the two-story building on their arrival. That location is near North Nova Road and Brentwood Drive.

Most damage confined to first floor

Lt. Stoney says firefighters found “…heavy flames coming from the kitchen and living room areas…and battled the intense heat and flames to confine the majority of the fire damage to the first floor.” Fire crews also found the fire extending into the second floor and roof, but were able to prevent the blaze from spreading and causing further damage.

Lt. Stoney said initial reports indicated that the resident of the home had left the kitchen while getting ready to cook, and upon returning, found the kitchen “…completely engulfed in flames.” The resident and a pet puppy were able to get out of the home uninjured, but one person on the scene was “…evaluated for an unrelated medical issue.” The resident said the family would be staying with relatives in the Daytona Beach area.
