Firefighters were called to 142 Lockwood St. in West Warwick early Thursday morning for a report of a house fire. Officials say it started in the kitchen at the single family home. There was heavy smoke damage to the house.

A family of six did make it out safely, although a homeowner was treated at the scene for minor burns after trying to extinguish the flames himself.

Crews were able to put the fire out in about 10 minutes.
