Fire and smoke damaged a home Monday afternoon in Ark City.

People were moving into the residence at 1305 W. Kansas, when the incident occurred around 2:30 p.m. No injuries were reported.

Damage was mostly contained to the kitchen area of the home and is believed to have started there, investigators said. Initial information indicated items had been placed on top of a stove burner that was later turned on somehow.

The fire did make its way upward into the ceiling and attic area. Damage was estimated at less than $5,000.

Much of the home sustained smoke damage.
