Investigators say candle sparked store fire

FRESNO, Calif.

The fire started just after 10 p.m. at The Point clothing store near Blackstone and Barstow Thursday night.

When crews arrived they saw flames coming from the back of the store.

Firefighters had to smash the front door to get inside.

Fortunately they were able to control the fire thanks in part to a sprinkler system.

Firefighters were able to put out the fire in a matter of minutes and were able to save a number of items inside the clothing store.
