EDMOND, Okla. (KFOR) – Officials say an overnight house fire was sparked by a young child who was playing with a lighter.
Shortly after midnight, fire crews were called to a home near N.W. 164th and MacArthur Blvd. on a house fire.
Investigators say a 4-year-old child was playing with a lighter when they caught a mattress on fire. The flames then started spreading to the house.
