A weekend fire leaves
one Axtell resident displaced.
The house fire broke
out early Sunday afternoon. Axtell Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to
the home on West 4th shortly before 2 p.m.
Fire officials say an
unattended lit candle apparently caught some papers on fire in the kitchen. Nobody was home when
the fire broke out.
American Red Cross
helped make arrangements for other housing.
Early figures say the
fire caused between 15- to 20-thousand-dollars damage. The fire is still
under investigation by the State Fire Marshall's office.
