A grease fire was to blame for a nasty kitchen blaze that appears to have gutted a Duck Lake home.

Nine emergency vehicles attended the scene at the very end of Parkinson Drive, one home from the lake, including police, fire crews and an ambulance. No one was hurt.

The fire broke out early in the dinner hour and was out before 5:30 p.m. thanks to the quick efforts of firefighters. Emergency personnel were likely to be on scene for several hours mopping up.
