Fire officials: Cigarette sparked Fresno blaze

FRESNO, Calif.

The flames broke out just before 2 a.m. Sunday morning at a duplex on Archie near Kings Canyon.

Firefighters say the cigarette ignited some bedding and quickly spread throughout the unit.

The flames also caused significant damage to half of the duplex, but crews were able to protect the other unit.
