VANCOUVER An unattended candle was to blame of a fire that seriously damaged a Vancouver apartment and left 10 people with a place to live Sunday.

The fire broke out on Northeast 7th Street in Vancouver around 6:30 a.m.

All of the tenants made it out safely, and the apartment manager said the fire started in the garage.

The tenant had a friend staying in the garage and it was evening they said they were going to bed...he said he fell asleep, the apartment manager told KGW.

The Red Cross was helping the tenants find a place to stay Sunday night.
