EL PASO - An overnight house fire in Central El Paso is being blamed on an unattended candle.

A woman came home from fourth of July festivities to find her home full of smoke.

Fire crews rushed to the scene and put out the fire in five minutes.

They managed to save her small dog by administering oxygen with a special dog-fitting mask.

Damage is estimated at $15,000.

No one was hurt.

There are options available other than flamed candles folks. My homeowners insurance is going to go up again because of people who are careless and leave flames burning in their homes.
