Candle blamed for blaze

WBFO File Photo

A costly Williamsville house fire is being blamed on an unattended candle. Alarms sounded after 8 PM last night, bringing firefighters to a house on Creek Road in Amherst. A candle burning inside a plastic pumpkin ignited nearby curtains, and the flames spread to other contents in the house.

Damage estimates are valued at more than $20,000.

No injuries were reported.
