A spent roman candle placed in a trash can ignited the can and the deck of an apartment Thursday afternoon.
Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical at 5:23 p.m. were called to the apartment at 1310 Ky, where flames were seen on the deck on the north side of the building.
``We hit it really quick and knocked it down,'' said Battalion Chief Jerry Karr.
The fire was declared under control at 5:34 p.m.
Fire damage included a portion of the deck and a wall near a sliding glass door.
Damage was estimated at $400.
There were no injuries.
