3:30 PM PT -- TMZ has learned, a candle was responsible for starting the fire.

12:16 PM PT -- A firefighter tells us ... Ashley, her boyfriend and her brother were out late last night and were sleeping when the fire broke out on the living room sofa.  They ran out of the apartment, and then realized the dogs were still there.  The 2 men tried to get back in to rescue them but couldn't.  We're told Ashley wanted to keep the dog that died, so firefighters wrapped it in a sheet and gave it either to Ashley or one of the 2 guys.

11:50 AM PT
-- A firefighter and a neighbor on scene just told TMZ ... one of the dogs died at the scene ... under the bed.  We have been told a second dog is expected to be taken to Animal Control ... to be checked out. And, we're told several other residents tried to fight the blaze with fire extinguishers.  They were covered in soot.

11:15 AM PT
-- Residents in the building who live near Ashley tell TMZ ... Ashley's brother and assistant had been going in and out of the condo all morning.  One resident says she heard glass exploding in Ashley's condo.  The woman says Ashley's toy fox terriers were inside the unit.   As we reported, one dog was definitely saved.

Marlo is a girl and Theo is a boy ... we're not sure which died.

At least 10 fire trucks swarmed to the 7-story building moments ago to extinguish the blaze. The full extent of the damage is unclear ... but a photo agency has released shots of the aftermath inside the apartment.

I just saw the video of Ashley. Is she being consoled by a hunky, topless firefighter (his pants look like the other firemen) while she is being asked questions by people taking notes (I guess the media). Why is she in the lobby giving interviews with her dead dog in her arms?

Only you can prevent condo fires... by not falling asleep on couches while holding a lit joint/cigarette!

you people really are horrible human beings...not only are you invading her privacy in the most horrible way by filming her when she is grieving, you are also getting in the way of firemen trying to do their jobs not to mention traumatizing her other dog by creeping around threateningly trying to film her like a rat hiding in a corner. absolutely pathetic TMZ.

By reading alot of these responses, it amazes me how many sick and twisted people there are in the world. Just because you don't like a movie, you think it's funny that someone's house burned down. And that a poor little dog that lost his life. What is wrong with you people. There's alot of actors I don't care for either. But I would never find pleasure in someone else's heartache.
