LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Grease is to blame for an early morning kitchen fire at the Bay Harbor apartments around 8:30 a.m.

Grease heating on the stove caught fire which grew out of control.

Everyone was able to get out safely.

The Iona McGregor Fire Department said this is a prime example of how dangerous cooking with grease can be.
