Abbeville Firefighters Respond to Kitchen Fire

An Abbeville family is displaced after a fire rips through their home.

Officials say the fire began around 8:10 Monday morning.

Abbeville Fire and Rescue arrived on the scene to find the back of the home completely engulfed in flames.

The blaze began in the kitchen and spread to the laundry room.

Kevin Burdshaw is grateful no one was home at the time of the fire.

“It happened when everyone had already left the house so what's damaged in there can be replaced and that's the most important thing,” said Burdshaw.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
