A lit cigarette is to blame for an early morning fire at 3300 N. Atlantic.
Peoria Fire crews responded to the home just after 4:30 this morning, finding smoke coming from the first floor.
Two couches in the living room had to be extinguished. The resident said he had fallen asleep while smoking.
Two young children were in the home at the time of the fire, but the man got them out of the home.
Damages are estimated at $25,000.
