CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. – Volunteer firefighters from South Line and neighboring department’s responded to a kitchen fire Monday afternoon.

The homeowners of 117 Dubonnet Drive returned home just before 12:30 p.m. to find smoke filing their home.

Dennis Rydzynski, Jr. Assistant Chief of the South Line Fire Company was one of the first firefighters on scene.  He found heavy smoke coming out of the front door and called for extra fire departments to help put out a kitchen fire.

The cause of the fire was an unattended toaster oven.  Damages from the fire are estimated to be between $1,000 and $10,000.

No one was hurt.
