Firefighters doused a quick-moving blaze that severely damaged a Westwood home Thursday morning.

The fire broke out on the second floor of the Hillside Avenue home around 5:15 a.m. and blew through the attic.

A candle left burning overnight may have been to blame, responders said.

Firefighters had the bulk of the blaze knocked down within 20 minutes.

A quick response prevented even more extensive damage.

No injuries were reported.
