A South of the River home caught fire Wednesday around 9 a.m.
Mike White was cooking breakfast in his family’s log home at 115 Hickory Lane when grease popped on his hand, spilled from the skillet onto the lit stove eye and caught fire.
With stored grease and lard in his cabinets above the stove, fire quickly spread up the walls and into the attic.
“I don’t even cook breakfast,” he said. “I don’t know what I was thinking.”
