The Kenai Fire Department, Central Emergency Services and the Nikiski Fire Department responded to a residential fire in the Thompson subdivision Friday afternoon.
The call came at about 2:30 p.m., said Kenai Battalion Chief Tony Prior. Two Kenai fire engines and one ambulance, one CES fire engine and one of Nikiski’s ladder trucks made it to the scene, he said.
Shortly after the Kenai Fire Department was en route, a call was received that the owner of structure was not home, Prior said. Smoke and flames were visible coming from the top level of the home, and most known damage was done to the living room area, he said.
The cause has not yet been determined, Prior said.
The fire was extinguished within the hour, relatively quickly, Prior said. There were no injuries and the owner has been contacted, he said.
The extent of the damage is unknown and the incident is still under investigation, Prior said.
