Unattended candle burns home, displacing family

COLUMBUS GROVE, Ohio - A fire displaced a family of five from their mobile home, authorities said.

The fire started about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the living room of the three-bedroom home from an unattended candle. The home was deemed a total loss, but a damage estimate was not available, authorities said.

The homeowner, Rick Zeller, and his family were not home at the time. The family's pets - two dogs and two cats - died in the fire, which was ruled accidental.
