Smoke and flames filled a home on Old Bucksville Road off Highway 701 near Bucksport Friday afternoon.
The homeowner was cooking, when she decided to visit her daughter two doors down and forgot she had something on the stove, according to a battalion chief on scene.
When she returned to the home, he said, she found the kitchen on fire.
There is fire damage to the kitchen and living room and smoke damage throughout the house.
It is uninhabitable at this time.
