Electrical equipment likely cause of smoke in Kingston home

KINGSTON – Fire officials were tearing apart ceilings in a Kingston home looking for electrical hot spots after residents saw smoke coming from a dining room vent today.

Genoa-Kingston firefighters, as well as those from several area departments, were called to 31728 Hillcrest Road about 11:55 a.m. today. Sycamore Assistant Fire chief Art Zern said electrical equipment somewhere in the home likely had overheated, and the fire departments were working together to clear smoke from the home.

The homeowner, Teri Wille, and her children were home at the time but there were no injuries. Wille said her children noticed smoke, so they grabbed their pets and exited the home before calling 911.
