More than twenty firefighters have battled a blaze in Redruth - started by a candle.
It broke out in a flat on Green Lane on Monday night, amid fears people could be trapped inside.
A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "At 20:06 Cornwall fire and rescue service received a call to a fire in a flat in Redruth. The fire was reported to be in the living room believed to have started by lit candles.
