DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – An unattended citronella candle is being blamed for a fire that destroyed a house in East Oak Cliff Friday morning.

Firefighters were called out to the 1600 block of Atlas Drive at Frio Drive before 1 a.m. When they arrived, they found heavy flames shooting up from the side of the house.

The Red Cross was called out to assist the displaced family.

Investigators said a man had been burning citronella candles to ward off mosquitoes as he worked on a car in the garage.

He went into the house for a short while and that’s when the flames erupted.

No one was hurt.
