REDDING, Calif. (AP) - Redding firefighters are battling a brush fire that was sparked by kids and now threatens a subdivision and apartment complex.
The Redding Record-Searchlight (http://bit.ly/N68RXx ) reports that the 20-acre blaze was started Tuesday by three children under 10 years old who were playing with fire.
Deputy Fire Chief Gerry Gray says the children have been released to parents who could be held liable for the costs of fighting the fire. No injuries have been reported.
Gray says the blaze is being fought by numerous fire crews, a helicopter and at least two air tankers. Off-duty personnel have been called for station coverage.
The fire is burning in a canyon near where another fire swept through about a year ago.
