Killeen fire officials responded to a kitchen fire at a home in the 3200 block of Edgewood Drive in Killeen at 4:38 a.m. Sunday.

Two adults and five children were affected by the fire, which was a result of a cooking accident, said Fire Chief J.D. Gardner.

Damage to the home was significant.

“It wasn’t a total loss, but there was damage to about 60 percent of the interior,” Gardner said.
