House Fire

Firefighters are investigating a house fire in the Springs.

It happened in the 2400 block of Monument Street.

Crews were called to the scene around 3:15 p.m.

It only took them 10 to 15 minutes to contain the flames but the house suffered serious damage.

The woman who lives at the house cares for several foster children. One of them, a 7 year-old boy, told her he was playing with matches.

Two adults, including the foster mother, were taken to Memorial Hospital with minor burns and smoke inhalation.
