DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Five people were evacuated from an apartment building this morning after a kitchen fire in Dubuque.

An 8-year-old called 911 and reported light smoke in his apartment building in the 3000 block of Pennsylvania Avenue just after 7:30 a.m.

Crews say there was smoke coming from the 2nd floor and found a fire on the stove top and extending into the cabinets.

A water extinguisher was used to completely knockdown the fire. Crews say someone left the stove on accidentally with oil in a pan. The fire was contained to the kitchen with crews on scene for an hour.

Everyone is alright.
