EAST WENATCHEE — A cigarette put in a pot ignited potting soil and damaged a cedar deck about 6:15 p.m. Monday.

The resident of the house in the 800 block of Garden Plaza used a garden hose to contain the fire, said Capt. Jeff Stephens with Douglas County Fire District 2.

Stephens said it burned about a two-foot square section of the deck.
