Unattended candle leads to Barre house fire

Posted: Updated:

BARRE, Vt. (AP) - Firefighters say an unattended candle in the basement caused a Vermont house fire, displacing a family of eight and a roommate.

The first started at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Barre City house.

Capt. Matt Cetin of the Barre City Fire Department tells the Times-Argus the family was lucky because a water pipe had broken near where the fire started, which helped control it.

He said one man was treated for smoke inhalation.
