Four engines and a battalion chief from Central Arizona Fire & Medical Authority and one engine from Prescott Fire Department responded to the call of a structure fire in Prescott Valley at about 11 a.m. Thursday on the 4700 block of North Carla Vista Drive, CAFMA Fire Marshall Rick Chase said.
The first CAFMA engine on scene arrived to find the entire residence, a mobile home, filled with smoke and nobody home.
Upon further inspection it was found that the kitchen stove was left on with a pan filled with burned food.
The damage was contained to the burned food, Chase said, noting that people should never leave a residence with the stove on.
