Highland Park -- It took firefighters only 10 minutes to extinguish an apartment fire that was apparently sparked by a candle, said the L.A. Fire Department.

The fire was limited to one room in a garden-style apartment in the 200 block of South Avenue 50, said LAFD. The fire was reported to have started at about 3:30 pm from a candle or open flame left in the room, said LAFD.

No injuries were reported.
