OKLAHOMA CITY – A homeowner returns overnight to find his house engulfed in flames.

Authorities said the homeowner called 911 at about 1:30 a.m. near S.W. 29th St. and Portland.

When fire crews arrived they said smoke was pouring from the fully involved fire.

Crews evacuated two neighboring houses as a precaution due to high winds.

Investigators said they believe the fire started from a candle left burning in the front bedroom.

Crews estimate the fire caused about $20,000 in damage.

No one was injured.
