DEERFIELD – Fire crews are investigating a house fire in Deerfield that broke out last night.


The fire at a home on Croissant Circle began around 7 p.m. Wednesday and it was called in by a neighbor. When crews arrived on scene they say they were met with heavy fire and smoke coming from the kitchen in the back of the house.

Officials say it was quick work to put the fire out, but the overhaul took hours. Crews spent about two hours on the scene working to put out hot spots.

The assistant fire chief tells us the fire was confined to the kitchen and that nobody was injured.

“To our knowledge there were no injuries, no firefighter injuries, no civilian injuries,” said Deerfield Assistant Fire Chief Kevin Powers. “There was a 93-year-old resident whose home it was, she was across the street at a neighbor’s.”
“It took us probably about 15 minutes to make entry, knock the fire down and have it completely under control. We've been here doing overhaul since then,” Powers said.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation this morning.
