Boy playing with lighter starts fire in Hamilton

HAMILTON, Ohio (WKRC) -- A child with a lighter started a fire at a multi-family home in Hamilton Tuesday.

Police were called to the home on Ross Avenue just after 8 a.m. Firefighters say the eight-year-old was playing with a lighter in the basement and accidentally caught a blanket on fire. He ran upstairs to get a 14-year-old to help him put it out. They got out of the home instead.

The fire did just five thousand dollars in damage but caused quite a scare for the families living there. All three families are expected to be able to return to the home.
