(KSL News) A house fire in Salt Lake County forces firefighters to issue another reminder. Never leave something cooking on the stove unattended.
A woman was cooking dinner and left oil on the stove while she ran upstairs. When she came back, the stove was engulfed in flames. She called 911 and got her two-year old and 7-month old children out safely.
Firefighters were able to keep the fire contained to the kitchen.
Capt. Michael Jensen/ PIO, Unified Fire Authority: "We would encourage people to keep in mind the things that you have on your stove and oven. Don't leave them unattended for any amount of time because they can get out of control quickly."
The family spent the night at a relative's house. Damage is estimated at $20-thousand.
