A kitchen fire caused minimal damage to a Beaufort apartment in the Parkview Apartment complex on Duke Street Tuesday night.
An unattended pot on the stove started the fire at about 10 p.m. It was put out with a fire extinguisher, according to a Beaufort Fire Department spokesman Capt. John Robinson.
There were no injuries. Two adults and two children living in the apartment have been temporarily displaced from their home, and were assisted by the Red Cross, Robinson said.
