Child playing with matches accidentally sets mobile home on fire
A child playing with matches accidentally lit a fire that caused thousands of dollars in damage to a mobile home in Saline Township Sunday evening.
Saline Area Fire Department Fire Chief Craig Hoeft said firefighters were sent at 7:48 p.m. Sunday to the 200 block of Dundee for a report of a structure fire. A neighbor extinguished the fire before crews arrived, Hoeft said.
A child was playing with matches outside the home and something caught on fire before spreading to the siding, Hoeft said. He said some of the siding was burned off and will have to be replaced.
No one was injured in the fire.
