Posted March 31st, 2014 @ 7:17am by Jim Donovan

Syracuse fire investigators say a child playing with a lighter caused a fire in a Spring Street home.

The fourteen people who lived in the two-family home got out safely.  Over two dozen firefighters were at the scene, and quickly brought the blaze under control.  The child, who officials say was in an upstairs closet when the fire started, will not be charged.  The Red Cross is assisting both families with food, clothing and shelter.
