According to Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson Pete Piringer, the accidental fire was ignited by the spontaneous combustion of some oily rags that were left on the patio.

One of the residents received minor burns while trying to put out the blaze, Piringer said. The resident was treated at the scene for minor injuries, he said.

Damages are estimated at $25,000, according to Piringer.
