Buckets of water used to put out Racine flames after child plays with fire

The Racine Fire Department was sent to Marquette Street just after 6:00 PM Wednesday evening for a report of a house fire.

A person in the home doused a bedroom closet fire with buckets of water prior to Fire Department arriving. There were no injuries to the family of five. 

Damage was limited to articles of clothing and personal items.

A quick investigation revealed that a child playing with fire was the cause of the flames.
