An adult and two children were displaced Tuesday by a fire at the Atlanta Street Apartments in Gainesville, according to the city fire department.

Firefighters responding about 12:30 p.m. extinguished the fire in the kitchen of the apartment in the 200 block of Atlanta Street, said Division Chief Keith Smith.

The fire marshal determined a candle caused the fire, and damage was estimated at $15,000.

The three displaced persons will be staying with friends while repairs are made to the apartment, Smith said.
