Authorities say an overturned candle is to blame for a fire that ripped through a building at The Park Place Apartments in Kokomo Saturday.
The “Kokomo Tribune” reports fire investigators determined the fire was accidental.
Kokomo Fire Department Deputy Chief Nick Glover the fire started in a downstairs apartment and most of the damage occurred there. But he says several units are smoke damaged and residents cannot yet go back home.
Complex managers are moving displaced residents into vacant units temporarily.
