Child and Lighter Responsible for Lansing Township Apartment Fire

By  | 

It appears a fire at the Westbay Club apartment complex in Lansing Township was caused by a child playing with a lighter in a closet.

That is the result of an investigation by Lansing Township's fire department.

The fire broke out last Thursday at 300 Western Avenue and destroyed an entire 24-unit building.

Investigators estimate the damage to be in excess of $400,000.
