Axtell House Fire Displaces Resident

Posted: Updated:

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.
