MILLEN, Ga. (WRDW) -- A 5-year-old girl dies in an early morning fire that sent the rest of her family to the hospital.

Grace Dudley died this morning in fire that was started by a candle in the bathroom.

The Dudley family lost power in their home during the ice storm. They were using a generator and candles while the power was out.

Parents, George and Nicolette Dudley are in the hospital being treated for burns and smoke inhalation. Dalton, 9, made it out of the house with no injuries.

The cause of the fire has been ruled accidental and weather related. Commissioner Ralph Hudgins is urging everyone to use extreme caution while using alternate sources of power.
