Candle caused condo fire

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – An investigation into the July 10 structure fire that occurred in the Town Creek Condominium complex has found the cause to be accidental.

Investigators pinned the origin of the fire on an unattended candle, located in a bedroom.

“The occupant is lucky to be alive,” said Battalion Chief Brian Coe. “There were no working smoke alarms in the unit and the occupant awoke when he felt flames on the bed where he was sleeping.”
