CINCINNATI - An unattended stove was the result of a one-alarm structure fire at a home in Westwood.
At 2:16 p.m. Sunday afternoon, the Cincinnati Emergency Communications Center received a telephone call reporting a house fire at 2148 Weron Avenue.
The fire units first on the scene reported a working fire in the kitchen of the single-family dwelling. Fire crews are reported to have contained the blaze to that area and extinguish the main body of the fire in approximately 10 minutes.
The fire was determined to have originated in the kitchen area as the result of food being left on an unattended stove.
