Lubbock Fire Rescue extinguished a kitchen fire in the 5200 block of 46th Street a little after 6 p.m. on Thursday night.
Fire officials say the blaze was caused by the resident using the stove to heat scented candle wax. The wax overheated and set fire to some nearby objects.
There were no injuries.
