Elizabeth Janney, Aberdeen Patch:

A child discovered that an unattended candle had caused a fire in his bedroom just before 11 p.m. Saturday and told his grandmother, the fire marshal said.

According to the fire marshal, the child’s parents, who also lived in the residence, were not home at the time of the fire, which was reported at 10:53 p.m.

The grandmother and her brother tried to fan the flames with a blanket, but the fire and smoke grew so they all left the house and alerted a neighbor who called 911, the report stated.
