LIVINGSTON — Quick work by Livingston firefighters stopped a kitchen fire before it spread through an apartment, Livingston fire chief Paul Jahns IV said Monday.
The fire damaged a stove and the cabinets above the stove, Jahns said.
At about 6:46 p.m., Columbia County 911 sent Livingston Fire Company and Northern Dutchess Paramedics to 39 Lasher Drive after a caller reported that her kitchen was on fire.
When firefighters arrived on the scene, they were able to put the fire out quickly. They then began checking to make sure it had not spread past the kitchen, Jahns said.
The sole resident of the apartment was able to make it out of the building safely.
There were no reported injuries, Jahns said.
Firefighters ventilated the building.
Fire and rescue vehicles lined County Route 19. The road was down to one lane of traffic, in the area of the fire.
State police assisted at the scene.
All firefighters were back in service at 8:10 p.m.
