A child playing with a lighter is responsible for setting a house in Leoni Township on fire Monday.
The home on Viking Drive was severely damaged by the flames. Fire officials say a nine-year-old boy accidentally set the house on fire, when he flicked the lighter on a tag on a mattress in the basement.
No one was hurt. Damages are estimated at $30,000. The family was renting the home and did not have renters insurance.
