ROCKFORD (WIFR) – Eight people are homeless after a fire tore through their kitchen. It happened a little before 1:00 on Forest Avenue in Rockford.

Firefighters say it started after a cooking mishap but they were able to keep it contained to just one room.

Unfortunately, there’s still about $25,000 worth of smoke damage.
