House Fire at 11th St and Kurze Ave Destroys Kitchen

Panama City Fire Department officials say a fire began at a house located on Kurze Avenue, off 11th Street, Saturday evening around 7 pm.

When they arrived on scene, neighbors said there were multiple occupants in the house, however, after further investigation, officials say the only person that was in the house escaped through a window and was on scene when they arrived.

The fire was extinguished within 10 minutes and while the kitchen, where fire investigators say the fire started, is damaged, the house is not a total loss.

Investigators believe the fire was caused due to unattended grease.
