UPDATE: Lincoln Fire and Rescue says a dog was killed and a man transported to the hospital after a house fire Wednesday morning.

The home, located at 5101 M Street, suffered an estimated $70,000 in damage, fire inspectors say. 

Investigators say the fire was caused by a lit candle. 

Crews reported heavy smoke coming from the home at around 9 a.m., and confined the fire to the room it started in. 

Search crews located a dead dog inside the home. 

LFR says a man was transported to the hospital from the scene. 

Officials have not released the extent of his injuries. 

LFR spokeswoman Nancy Christ said there was not a smoke detector in or outside of the bedroom.
