The American Red Cross is helping a Peabody resident find somewhere else to stay on Saturday night after a kitchen fire at his townhouse.
The resident was cooking when the fire broke out, Hosman said, and the fire was contained to the kitchen, including the stove and nearby cabinets. Two engines, a ladder truck and a deputy chief responded.
“It ended up being a small kitchen fire,” Hosman said.
Just one townhouse unit was affected by water and smoke damage. The resident was checked out by Atlantic ambulance medics and found to be OK, Hosman said.
