One injured in Beloit house fire


A 21-year-old man was injured after a kitchen fire in Beloit early Thursday morning.

The Beloit Fire Department responded just after midnight to find a fire in the kitchen area of a home in the 1300 block of Porter Avenue. The fire was caused by a hot oil spill in the kitchen, which caused mild fire and moderate smoke damage to the home. 21-year-old Michael Evers was burned and went to the hospital via a personal vehicle.

The estimated damage to the structure of the home is $5,000 and the estimated damage to the home's contents is $2,000.

The Red Cross is assisting the three adults displaced by the fire. They are staying in a local hotel.
