Logan Fire Chief Scott Beckett said the state Fire Marshall's office came in and investigated the Morgan Street blaze and determined it was caused as a result of unattended cooking.
"It looks like somebody was up around 3 a.m. cooking on Sunday (morning)," Beckett said. "It was an accidental fire and this is the time of year when we see a lot of those. There was a delay in reporting the kitchen fire, (because) they thought they had it out, but they didn't. If you have a kitchen fire, call the fire department and we will come and check it out with our thermal imaging camera. Sometimes these things spread and break out again. We were lucky on that one that the building had smoke alarms which saved lives. That was a huge plus."
Beckett said Sunday's fire in town could have been even more tragic. Beckett said there was great concern about how easily the whole block could have gone up in flames, considering how the buildings are built so close to one another.
"It was a testament to the work our firefighters did that we did not lose a whole block," Beckett said. "We were able to contain it to one house. We did not want to lose that, but it couldn't be helped. It was a tough situation all around. We didn't lose anybody and everybody got out without injury."
