Candle sets bathroom fire

Montoursville volunteer firefighters responded to this home at 173 Shick Road in Fairfield Township to douse a bathroom fire about 7:10 a.m. Saturday. Heat from a lit candle ignited a section of a wall, Montoursville Fire Chief Scott Konkle said. A resident, using a garden hose, already had much the fire extinguished before firefighters arrived on the scene. Damage was estimated at $5,000. No one was displaced by the fire.
