Iowa house fire blamed on kids and fireworks

Posted:

ALBERT CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities say two children playing with fireworks started a fire that destroyed a home in Albert City in northwest Iowa last weekend.

The Buena Vista County sheriff's office says the fire on Sunday started in a chair and mattress in a garage, then spread to the house.

No one was injured.

Authorities say because of their ages, 5 and 7, the children won't be charged.

The sheriff's office says firefighters were called to the house again on Monday after the fire rekindled in the attic.
