Pasco Apartment Fire Started by Kids Playing with Lighter

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - An apartment complex in Pasco goes up in flames and witnesses say some kids were playing with a lighter.

The fire happened in some privately owned apartments on North 25th Court and West Park Street in Pasco.

Flames could be seen coming out of a bedroom window which quickly moved to the roof.

Everyone was evacuated and no one was hurt.

A mother and five children were living in the apartment at the time. She was surrounded by firefighters when she fainted in the parking lot.

We spoke with her off camera. She tells us her kids were playing with a lighter and lit a mattress on fire.
