The Overland Park Fire Department says a woman was able to escape her home when a fire broke out in her kitchen shortly after 8 Christmas morning.

Fire Department Media Manager Jason Rhodes says firefighters arrived to find smoke visible from the house on the southeast corner of 81st Street and Riggs Lane.

"Firefighters quickly went to work attacking a fire in the kitchen, while additional crews searched the home to be sure everyone was out," Rhodes said in a news release. "Fire significantly damaged the kitchen and adjoining living area."

Crews worked for approximately 25 minutes to bring the fire under control.

Rhodes says the resident was treated at the scene for minor smoke inhalation.

"Investigators believe the fire originated in the kitchen, but the exact cause is under investigation," Rhodes said.

The home did have working smoke alarms.

Firefighters from Consolidated Fire District No. 2 also responded to the scene.

The resident of the home is being assisted by the Red Cross.
