The LA Fire Department has announced what could be the cause of this morning's fire in Mar Vista that left one woman dead. It "appears to be 'accidental, most probably related to candles,' wrote LAFD spokesman Ron Myers in an alert. The fire at 3448 Colonial Ave. near the intersection of Centinela Ave. and Palms Blvd. began around 5:30 a.m. and took 25 firefighters to knock it down in 20 minutes.
