Firefighters were called to a house in the 800 block of Polk St., just before 4 p.m. when a fire broke out in the home’s kitchen, Sandusky fire Capt. Matt Lesch said.
A resident escaped the home safely, but the first floor did sustain some smoke damage, Lesch said.
The fire started when a resident was cooking food on the stovetop.
Flames leapt up from a pan, catching a few kitchen cabinets on fire, Lesch said.
