Fire Dept.: Kids playing with lighter start house fire

Friday June 13, 2014

MADISON, Wisc.--- A house fire that did roughly $25,000 in damage was caused by children playing with a lighter, according to the Madison Fire Dept.

The fire started Friday afternoon in the 4700 block of Camden Rd. on Madison's east side. The fire started in a bedroom after two children played with a lighter.

Three children in the home got out of the house without being injured. The fire department says one of the children shut a door and that kept the fire from spreading to other parts of the house.
