YAKIMA, Wash. - Firefighters say it was a 6-year-old playing with matches who started the fire at Cornerstone Apartments on 72nd. The fire caused $40,000 damage to the apartment building and sent a woman to a hospital.
Battalion Chief Abel Castilleja says the child started the fire in bushes Tuesday afternoon and the flames spread up the building wall to the attic.
A resident who tried to extinguish the fire was treated for smoke inhalation. No one was killed.
