HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A 3-month-old baby girl had to be rescued from a house after the mother smelled smoke.

Renters who lived on the second floor of a house in the 700 block of 11th Avenue in Huntington were packing up their belongings when the mother smelled smoke.

She saw the kitchen on fire and yelled to a friend in the other room to "grab the baby, there's a fire", the mom said. The friend grabbed the baby girl and everyone got out safely.

According to the renters, they were packing and had placed some boxes on the stove which may have accidentally turned the stove on.

Huntington's Fire Chief says the fire was contained to the kitchen which was destroyed. Smoke filled the other rooms on the second floor.

The fire is still under investigation.
