Waterford _ No injuries were reported this morning from a fire that destroyed the kitchen of a house at 53 Devonshire Drive.
The owner of the house called from a neighbor’s home to report the fire and was not injured, according to fire officials.
The identity of the owner was not immediately available.
Four of the town’s five fire departments responded to the fire, which broke out after 9 a.m. A fifth department stood by to cover other calls, and the Submarine Base fire department also provided assistance.
Lori Lowe, a neighbor, said the owner of the house was baking at the time the fire started in a dryer.
