Around 6:12 p.m. on January 9, Coral Springs firefighters were called to the home the Yardley Estates community off of Wiles Road and within minutes, the fire was under control.

According to Coral Springs Fire Department Division Chief Mike Moser, the cause of the fire is still under investigation by the fire marshall, “But he is willing to say that it may be related to embers from a blown out candle.”

No one was hurt and the most damage was caused to the kitchen area.
