HUNTINGBURG — An unattended pan of grease brought out members of the Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department Saturday evening.
Fire Chief Scott Patberg said an occupant at the rental unit at 414 N. Jackson St. dropped a pan of overheated grease when he tried to move it, catching kitchen chairs and the floor on fire at 6:15 p.m.
The flames were almost out when firefighters arrived but there was heavy smoke that had to be ventilated, the chief said.
Four trucks and 15 firefighters were on the scene 45 minutes.
The Huntingburg Police Department assisted, as did Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services with an ambulance on standby.
