Greater Alarm Structure Fire 7/9/2010

*UPDATE: 1609 S Oak St* The cause of this devastating fire was children playing with matches. Many are surprised to learn that the leading causes of fire deaths for children is from playing with matches and lighters. The Los Angeles Fire Department along with our friends at FEMA would like to stress the following reminders:
*Store matches and lighters out of children's reach and sight.
*When a child is curious about fire, calmly and firmly explain that matches and lighters are tools for only adults.
*In addition, instruct toddlers to tell you when they find matches or a lighter.
*Please never use matches or lighters as amusement for your children. They may imitate your actions. - Erik Scott###
