An alert neighbor put out a house fire on Elvin Drive on Monday morning before firefighters arrived, said St. George Fire Department spokesman Eldon Ledoux.

The fire was caused by an unattended pot left on a stove, Ledoux said, and caused damage to the kitchen, though smoke had spread throughout the home at 1842 Elvin Drive.

No one was hurt in the fire, but the Red Cross was contacted to assist the residents, Ledoux said.
