A family of four was displaced after a house fire Thursday near Belleville.
The Northwest Fire Protection District responded at 5:21 p.m. to a house fire in the 900 block of Peony Drive near Belleville. No one was injured, according to Chief Dennis Oaks.
A 13-year-old girl was cooking when the fire broke out in the kitchen, Oaks said.
When crews arrived, the working smoke alarms were sounding and everyone who was home was standing outside, he said.
It took crews about 20 minutes to extinguish the blaze, which was contained to the kitchen. However, there was considerable smoke and damage throughout the upper level of the split-level home, Oaks said.
The American Red Cross said Friday that it was providing food, clothing and shelter to two adults and two children.
