Two pre-teens, allegedly smoking in a bathroom, are to blame for a fire at the Woodcrest Apartments at 66th and Chicago.
Fire officials tell NewsChannel 11 that the 10 and 12 year old girls put the cigarette butts in the bathroom wastebasket and then left for school. Around 8:30 a.m., the mother awakened to the smell of smoke. She suffered burns to her hands, while trying to get the trash can out of the apartment. EMS took her to the hospital.
There was little damage done to the apartment.
