Kitchen fire causes $20,000 in damages to Livermore home


Firefighters from the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department extinguished a kitchen fire in a home in the 2700 block of Kennedy Street in Livermore Friday evening.

Battalion Chief Michael Miller said the homeowner came home after being gone for several hours to find the house filled with smoke. He immediately went outside and called 911.

It was determined that the kitchen fire was accidental.

Because there was extensive smoke damage to the entire home, the owner was able to arrange to stay at another house. There were no injuries to the home occupant or firefighters.

Total damage was estimated at $20,000, Miller reported.
