Holiday decorations caught fire inside a Lombard house Monday, damaging furniture in the living room but causing no injuries, authorities said Tuesday.

Firefighters are encouraging residents to keep candles away from combustible decorations, burn them inside glass containers and extinguish them before leaving home or going to sleep.
