Fire investigators believe a candle started a fire at a 77 year old home in southwest Redmond Wednesday night. The residents were using candles because the power had recently been shut off. The blaze caused about $45,000 worth of damage to the house on SW Deschutes Avenue. Nobody was home at the time, but at least one cat died in the fire.
