A stove fire started by a child was extinguished by the Jamestown Fire Department on Thursday morning.

Stutsman County Communications Center alerted Jamestown Fire Department to a report of a stovetop fire at 8:06 a.m. at 233 17th Ave. NE. A child apparently had accidentally turned on a stove while there was plastic containers on the surface, said JFD Chief Jim Reuther.

Two trucks and 24 firefighters responded, he said. The firefighters extracted smoke from the home and it was not known at the time of the call if there was other fire damage, he said.

No injuries were reported, Reuther said. JFD cleared the scene at 8:24 a.m.
