MAPLEWOOD, Mo. (KSDK) - The saying goes if you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen. But it was a different kind of heat that made it tough for firefighters to battle a kitchen fire in Maplewood Thursday.
Temperatures were so hot outside that paramedics were called to the home on Marion Court just to make sure firefighters were okay.
Several firefighters were evaluated on the scene for possible heat exhaustion. So far, no reports of injuries.
Crews were able to put out the small fire.
