COLUMBIA - Unattended cooking caused a fire in a Columbia home Sunday evening. 

It all happened in the 200 block of Unity Drive around 2:45 p.m. Sunday. 

Crews arrived at the scene in less than five minutes and reported smoke showing from a single story residential structure. Everyone in the home got out safely.

According to a news released, firefighters used a pre-connected hose line and performed an aggressive attack, getting the fire under control in about 10 minutes.
