Dunedin fire causes $110,000 in damage to candle manufacturer

DUNEDIN — A fire Sunday morning caused $110,000 in damage to a candle-manufacturing facility in Dunedin, authorities said.

Dunedin firefighters responded to a call about a fire in a storage warehouse at the rear of 1430 Main Street at 11 a.m. Sunday, according to Fire Chief Jeffrey Parks.

Firefighters were able to confine the fire to a single warehouse unit, which is used by Clearwater Candles as a manufacturing location, according to Parks. It took about 45 minutes to bring the fire under control, and nobody was injured.

An electrical problem caused the fire, which caused $110,000 in damage, Parks said — some $90,000 in lost supplies and $20,000 in damage to the building.

Clearwater and Palm Harbor fire crews also assisted at the scene.
