PORTLAND, Conn. (AP) _ Fire officials believe candles may have ignited a blaze that destroyed a home in Portland.

Portland fire officials say homeowners told them they had candles burning in a bedroom on the house on Wilcox Road, which was left without power following Tropical Storm Irene.

The fire was reported at about 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday. Nobody was injured, but fire officials say several pets may have perished in the blaze.
