Indoor Campfire Ends Badly for Kids
There were some scary moments this afternoon at the East Lake Courts.
Some kids were setting a campfire.
Unfortunately, they were in a bedroom at the time and a mattress caught on fire.
The flames and smoke forced evacuations of the neighbors.
But firefighters quickly put the flames out.
Fire spokesman Bruce Garner tells us "two young children were pretending to be camping, up in the bedroom. They evidently started what they thought was a campfire. And the fire spread to the mattress and that’s what caused the problem. Fortunately, the children got out safely, they were not injured."
Officials tell us the children are too young to charge.
