They awoke a women at the flat who immediately extinguished the blaze by tipping the candle into the bath tub.
The women, believed to be in her 40's, was treated for smoke inhalation at the scene and an ambulance was called.
The flat did not have a smoke alarm installed.
Station manger Seth Juby warned people to be careful with candles.
"Do not leave candles unattended, always put them in a heat proof dish and always have a smoke alarm," he said.
