Harrisonburg Fire Department says a burning candle most likely caused a house fire in the 1200 block of Goldfinch Drive in Harrisonburg.
The fire started in a bedroom where someone left a candle burning.
Fire crews contained the fire within a half an hour, and everyone got out safely.
They say damage was mostly in the bedroom where the fire started.
Harrisonburg Fire Chief, Larry Shifflett, cautions people about using candles in their home.
"You can't take them for granted," says Chief Shifflett. "You have got to remember that you lit a candle before you leave the house. You've got to remember, even when you're home, that you've got a candle burning when you leave a room."
Chief Shifflett says he thinks the damage to the home is somewhere around $20,000.
