Children playing with a lighter started a house fire in York Tuesday, yet firefighters were able to arrive quickly suppress the fire and keep damage to a minimum, fire officials said.
No one was injured in the fire at 217 McClain St. that started around 11:30 a.m. said Domenic Manera, York Fire Department Chief. The fire started on some curtains, Manera said.
Damage was estimated at around $500, but smoke forced the family of two adults and four children to be temporarily displaced, Manera said.
The American Red Cross is assisting the family with essentials during displacement, Red Cross officials said in a statement.
Never miss a local story.
Tender Hearts Ministries in York is also helping the family, Manera said.
