Child Playing With Lighter Starts Apartment Fire
For the second time this week, firefighters say a child playing with fire set a home ablaze.
Investigators were called to 540 Mornington Ave. just before midnight Thursday night.
A child playing with a lighter set some books on fire, which in turn set the book case on fire, causing about $3,500 in damage.
No one was hurt in the fire.
Earlier this week, two boys playing with matches started a fire at a Banbury Rd. home.
The homeowner tried to put out the fire and realized the boys, aged 8 and 10, had ran away from home in only their pyjamas.
They were discovered several blocks away and taken to hospital as a precaution.
