Beloit Fire Department responds to kitchen fire

An East side Beloit home sustains around $12,000 in damage from a kitchen fire.

Beloit firefighters responded to 800 Sherwood Dr. around 3:00 Friday afternoon and found smoke coming from the back of the house.

Investigators say the owner of the home was moving into the house and placed a box on the kitchen stove, bumping a knob and turning on one of the burners. Physical damage was confined to the kitchen but there was smoke damage in other parts of the house.

No injuries are reported
