Fire causes $18K damage to Bancroft St. apartment

A fire in an apartment kitchen ignited cabinets and spread into the attic last night at 5240 West Bancroft St., Battalion Chief Eric Renzhofer said.

A woman was frying food on the stove in the second-floor apartment about 8:30 p.m. when the grease caught fire, he said. She and a neighbor called the fire department after they failed to put out the flames.

The woman and a child in the apartment escaped unharmed. Damage was estimated at $18,000.
