No one was hurt during a Crestwood house fire Wednesday morning.
Crestwood firefighters responded to a blaze in the back of a single-family home in the 13800 block of Keller Street about 8:30 a.m. The single-alarm fire appeared to have been ignited electrically, officials said.
Four people were in the home at the time of the fire, and all escaped without injury, officials said.
The Crestwood Fire Department, flanked by firefighters from six neighboring departments, contained the blaze to the home and put it out within 40 minutes, according to Crestwood Fire Chief Jon Bruce.
