The resident of a home in central Lincoln that caught fire when a candle in a bedroom tipped over Wednesday morning was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, a fire official said.
Lincoln Fire and Rescue crews contained the fire at 5101 M St. to the bedroom and extinguished it shortly after they were called to the home at about 9 a.m., Battalion Chief Dave Engler said. A dog died during the fire.
A fire investigator estimated damage to the house at $70,000. The home was valued for tax purposes at $97,700.
The American Red Cross will assist in relocation efforts.
