RACINE (WITI) — Racine fire officials say a kitchen fire Sunday, July 20th has displaced a family, and caused $20,000 in damage.

Fire officials say the family has been displaced due to a fire that originated in their kitchen while they were out in their backyard.

The family was on their patio, when a neighbor noticed smoke coming from a kitchen window.

The neighbor notified the family that their house was on fire, and a 911 call was made.

The fire was extinguished within 10 minutes of the arrival of fire crews — but extensive damage had already been done.
