Apartment Fire Blamed On Unattended Candle

BEND, OR -- A small apartment fire in northeast Bend is being blamed on an unattended candle. Bend Fire says a friend of the resident first discovered the fire just before 1 p.m., Thursday, and put it out with a blanket. 


When fire crews arrived, they extinguished smoldering material and helped clear smoke from the building. Investigators say a candle ignited nearby drapes in the second-floor apartment, which caused about $1,000 in damage.
