An accidental fire at a downtown Seattle antique store caused $35,000 in damage Friday night.

The Seattle Fire Department said a stove-top burner lit a piece of cardboard on fire. The flames spread to cabinets and damaged a storage area above the store in the 1800 block of 6th Avenue.

The first reports of smoke came in shortly after 5 p.m. and firefighters were able to extinguish the fire in a few minutes, according to the department.

A single employee escaped safely.
