CALEXICO — Fire officials here are urging parents to seek help if they find their children playing with fire
Firefighters said there are services in the Valley to counsel children about the dangers of fire.
Earlier this week, the Calexico Fire Department responded to a house fire in the 300 block of Sixth Street and found heavy smoke coming from one bedroom.
Fire Capt. Ernesto Avila said crews extinguished the fire within 15 minutes. Once the fire was "knocked down," Avila said, crews started to investigate the cause.
They determined a 6-year-old boy had been playing around the stove and had apparently ignited a rubber antennae on a radio.
