Child Ignites Play Pen with Lighter

thumb_9a4090447e6a4dbBranson firefighters are called to the Branson Park Apartments on a report of a possible structure fire in progress.

Crews arrived Friday evening to find a bedroom filled with smoke after a 3-year-old child reportedly ignited a play pen with a lighter.

Fire Chief Ted Martin says the child was not in the play pen at the time, and was not injured…


Martin says the prevention message is for parents to keep a close eye on small children, keep lighters and matches out of their reach, and make sure your residence has working smoke alarms.
