Firefighters from Edlington and Doncaster stations were called to the blaze on St Catherine’s Avenue at 9.54pm, a spokesperson for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said.
“Upon arrival, they found a smoke logged house, but no fire,” said the spokesperson.
“This had occurred due to a candle setting fire to a table cloth.
“This was smothered by the occupier in time to stop the fire, but not the smoke.
“Crews left the scene at 10.09pm.”
