LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A candle left unattended is blamed for a fire that destroyed the main building of a motel in Lawrence, Kansas.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the fire broke out Monday at the Jayhawk Motel. The building that was destroyed also included the motel office and a three-bedroom apartment where the owners lived.

The candle was in a dining area of the owners’ living quarters.

No one was hurt.

Authorities say the motel’s three guest buildings were not damaged.
