Candle starts Dubois-area bathroom fireDecember 27, 2019
From Local Sources
DUBOIS — A candle started a bathroom fire at a house south of Dubois Tuesday afternoon.
Units of the Dubois Volunteer Fire Department were called to the Brian Heeke residence at 2501 N. Celestine Road North at 4:41 p.m.
Department spokesman Zach Eichmiller said a candle in a basement bathroom had something flammable close to it that ignited during a Christmas get-together. The bathroom door was closed so the fire was not discovered until someone opened the door, Eichmiller added.
The Heeke’s son, Theo, took a rug and smothered the fire, Eichmiller said.
Flames had burned up a wall but were contained there.
Firefighters exhausted smoke.
Three trucks and 19 firefighters were on the scene 40 minutes.
