The Richburg Fire Department responded to two cooking fires Tuesday night, and those two fires were part of a total of four cooking fires across the county, said Richburg Fire Marshal Mike Ehrmanntraut.

In the first fire, the homeowner was warming oil in the frying pan when the grease caught fire. They attempted to put the fire out with water, which actually spread the fire and burned the cabinet and microwave. The homeowner then put the fire out by putting a lid on the pot. A firefighter removed the pan and a fan was used to extract the smoke.
