Boy Sparks Fire While Playing with Lighter at Hamilton Twp. Apartment

COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- Investigators believe a young boy with a lighter started a fire that forced several people out of their homes at a Hamilton Township apartment complex.

Firefighters were able to prevent the spread of the flames from the 4-year-old boy's bedroom. The child was playing with a lighter when something in the room caught fire, according to investigators.

At least four people were inside that apartment when the fire started.

No one was hurt as a result of the fire, but several residents were forced to rush into the bitter cold without taking proper preparations. Firefighters helped those residents -- some of whom were wearing shorts -- stay warm before Red Cross volunteers arrived to provide assistance.
