Crews from Dogsthorpe and Stanground were called to a house fire in Burghley Road after a tealight set fire to a television.
Firefighters arrived at the two-storey property to find flames coming out of the window.
Crews wearing breathing apparatus used two hose reels and a covering jet to extinguish the fire and returned to their stations by 10.45pm.
Cause of the fire was accidental.
A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Please remember to take care with candles and extinguish them before going to bed or leaving the room or house, place on a flat surface and keep them away from curtains and other flammable furnishings.”
