BAKER - An unattended kitchen fire is what the Baker fire department says started a blaze at a home on Hovey Street Saturday night.

Fire officials say the homeowner fell asleep around 9 o'clock while he was frying fish and the oil started a fire that spread to the cabinets, walls and ceiling before spreading into the attic.

The homeowner was the only one home at the time and got out of the house.

The Red Cross was called in to assist the family.
