Crews called to kitchen fire in Marion


A small kitchen fire sent Marion fire crews to an apartment Monday morning.

Fire officials were called to 1550 50th Street just after 10 a.m. Upon arrival, there was no smoke showing, but water was running from the front of the building from the second floor onto the driver.

Crews found a small fire in the kitchen area, which had burned through the water piping for the kitchen sink and was causing the water to run through a front wall. The fire was under control within 10 minutes.

A cause is under investigation.  No one was injured.

Officials say there were no working smoke detectors in the structure. A tenant noticed the fire when she came home.
