Broome County Fire Investigators Determine Cause of House Fire

Broome County fire investigators have determined the cause of Monday's house fire on Avelon Drive in Vestal that left one family without a place to live.

Officials say the fire started in an exhaust fan in the kitchen when grease got into the duct work which spread into the attic. Firefighters were called to the scene around 2:30 yesterday after a person at the home called 9-1-1.

Officials say no one was injured in the blaze, but it did cause significant damage to the single story brick home.
