Stove left on causes fire in Durham home

Firefighters said that leaving an electric stove left on and unattended caused a fire that damaged a Nash Street home Sunday.

The fire at 511 Nash St. burned the kitchen and attic and spread smoke throughout the house, Deputy Chief Chris Iannuzzi said.

No one was home when firefighters got the alarm at 4:17 p.m., Iannuzzi said.
