An unattended candle is being blamed for a Friday night fire at a South Fairmount apartment building that left six families without homes.
No one was injured in the 7 p.m., two-alarm fire that caused an estimated $45,000 damage at 2725 Baker, fire officials said.
The Cincinnati-area chapter of the American Red Cross, said her agency provided shelter for five of the families.
A fire Saturday in Fairfield displaced one family and sent three people to the hospital for observation. Fairfield Fire Captain Jeff Kenworthy said the fire on Castleton Drive was contained to the garage and attic when his crew arrived at about 2:30 a.m.
He said none of the family members was seriously injured, and would not release names. The fire, still under investigation, caused an estimated $40,000 in damage.
