JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A Jacksonville family who had no electricity was forced out of their home after it caught fire from a candle they were using to light the house.
The fire started in a bedroom Friday night, filling the house with smoke.
The Florida Times-Union reports 65-year-old Thomas Setzer was sitting in the living room when he smelled smoke.
His daughter saw flames and the family scrambled outside. No one was injured, but the bedroom was damaged. Setzer is in a wheelchair.
Setzer said his wife, three children and two dogs were living in the dark after their power was cut Friday.
Setzer said it could have been Tuesday until they had power.
