ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - An Athens-Clarke fire investigator said a candle sparked Monday's blaze that killed a retired University of Georgia art professor.
Fire Inspector Alan Morse said the fire was ruled an accident. He said it started when a candle set a couch on fire in a bedroom.
The wood-frame house was heavily damaged.
Authorities said 66-year-old William "Bill" Mariott died from smoke and soot inhalation.
