Burning Candle Sets Apartment Unit on Fire

A South Tyler family has no place to call home after a two alarm fire destroys their apartment Friday morning.

The fire broke out at Lexington Downs Apartments, located on the 5600 block of Old Bullard Road. Investigators say a candle burning near a curtain caused the blaze.

No one was injured, but many neighbors' apartments were damaged by smoke and water. Neighboring residents, however, were told they could move back into their apartments. The fire caused $50,000 worth of damages.
