No injuries in kitchen fire in Rantoul
RANTOUL — A Rantoul woman and her young son escaped without injury when a fire broke out in the kitchen of their home Thursday afternoon.
Taylor Huss and her toddler son were at home at 1144 Bel Air Drive when fire broke out, Fire Chief Ken Waters said.
"She accidently turned on the wrong burner on her stove. It flashed on her, burned the cabinets (and caused) a lot of smoke and soot damage."
The cabinets were on fire when firefighters arrived about 1 p.m. One cabinet had to be torn out, Waters said.
The fire chief estimated damage at $5,000.
Eight firefighters responded to the call.
The home is owned by R&R Rentals.
