Fire from candles displaces family at Greenhouse

Quick response confines blaze to rear bedroom of a rear unit at condominium complex

A family has been displaced by a modest fire -- possibly caused by candles -- in a rear condominium at the Greenhouse complex on San Antonio Road Sunday morning, Battalion Chief Niles Broussard reported.

He said the fire was reported about 10 a.m. in a rear bedroom Sunday and was extinguished within 10 minutes of the arrival of firefighters, with damage limited to the bedroom.

Fire officials said in a statement that they expect the family to be displaced for a "short period of time." The department is still trying to determine the damage estimate.
