CHAMPAIGN — The resident of a home in Champaign was treated for minor injuries after an early-morning fire Friday.

A release from the Champaign Fire Department said firefighters found smoke and flames coming from the side of a two-story duplex in the 400 block of Nathaniel Burch Drive about 3:30 a.m.

The fire was primarily contained to the kitchen, but the damage was bad enough that the occupant will not be able to live there for a while.

Firefighters treated the resident at the house, then took that person to the hospital.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. Firefighters were there just over an hour.
