COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- All is well today at Columbia Fire Station One after a kitchen fire was reported there last night.

According to Columbia Fire spokesperson, Brick Lewis, the units of the Laurel Street station had been dispatched to separate incidents and left food cooking on the stove.

Damages, mostly water from the sprinkler system that activated, are estimated at $20,000.

Columbia Fire Chief Aubrey Jenkins says this is an example of how cooking fires can happen anywhere, to anyone. He also notes you should never leave food cooking unattended.
