CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- No one was hurt in a fire that broke out in Fort Hill this morning.
The blaze broke out in the kitchen of a home at 673 Gordon Drive at about 6:45 a.m.
Wesley Smith of the Charleston Fire Department said the fire apparently started in a microwave oven, then spread up the back wall into the attic. He estimated damage to the home at about $20,000.
A babysitter was at the house watching several children when the fire broke out, but all were able to get out of the house safely.
