ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany firefighters say a candle was knocked off a space heater and started a fire in a south Albany triplex.

That fire started just before 11:00 Tuesday night at 802 South Harding street. The bed and carpet caught fire, and flames spread to surrounding areas of the home. No one was hurt.

The apartment is in a three-unit building. All three families will be displaced for the night.

Albany firefighters urge you to use extreme caution with space heaters and candles.
