Firefighters were called to a house fire in Douglas on Tuesday which had been started by a candle.
Crews attended at 9.30pm after the blaze in the living room.
The property owner confirmed everyone had evacuated safely and the fire was out – work was then undertaken to vent the area.
The Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service say it believes the fire started due to a damaged candle holder.
It’s asking people to put candles in proper holders and to ensure they never leave a candle unattended.
