The Emporia Fire Department responded to a fire at 1101 Peyton Street on Sunday morning. The call came in at 8:57 a.m. The home owned by Patrick Brooks was occupied by Ronica Brooks.
The cooking fire was extinguished by the time the fire department arrived but a large amount of smoke was present throughout the home.
Rex Fisher, with the fire department says that the area was scanned with a thermal camera to ensure the fire had not extended from the area. The fire department removed the smoke and deodorized the residence.
There were no injuries as a result of the fire.
