STAMFORD - A Stamford man says his neighbor's kitchen is destroyed after going up in flames Friday night.

The flames broke out inside a duplex on Hope Street at around 8 p.m.

Jorge Fernandez says he could smell smoke in his part of the house, so went outside and discovered the other half was on fire. He says he ran inside with a bucket full of water in an attempt to put out the flames.

Fernandez says the fire department arrived a short time later and put out the fire.

News 12 is told seven people were inside at the time, including a baby and pets. No injuries were reported.
