House fire last week was set by child

LUBBOCK,TX (KCBD) - Last Thursday KCBD NewsChannel showed a fire in the 1500 block of 25th street. 

Investigators now believe a child set the fire.  It burned the storage area of a house but there were no reports of injuries.  The child will not face criminal charges.  Instead the fire department will use its Juvenile Fire Starters Program to counsel the child, who might or might not understand how serious fire can be.  The Fire Department says that's often better with small children.
