Smoke billows from a window of a home at 630 N. Brandon Ave. in Celina following a minor house fire that was reported by a resident upon arriving there at 4:52 p.m. Monday. Six Celina firefighters and two trucks responded to the scene of the two-story frame structure that sustained minor damage. Fire Chief Doug Kuhn said the fire was contained to the living room area, although smoke damage was found throughout the home. The cause of the fire is being blamed on a candle wax pot that may have malfunctioned. A damage estimate was not available at press time. The home is owned by Wilma Hall and is insured. Firefighters were on the scene for approximately 90 minutes, according to Kuhn.
