The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service says a candle is to blame in a fire Monday evening in the West End.

Just after 5 p.m., fire crews responded to a two-storey home in the 600 block of Toronto Street.

Smoke was coming from the home when crews arrived. Firefighters were able to quickly get the fire under control, with damage contained to the room where it first started.

Residents of the home were able to evacuate safely before crews arrived, and no injuries were reported.
