House Fire Possibly Linked to Fireworks

Investigators say that children playing with fireworks might have been responsible for a house fire in Elkhorn Friday afternoon.

Battalion Chief Chris Newton tells us that children in the neighborhood set off fireworks that landed on top of a neighbor’s roof.

The owners were in the house at the time but no one was hurt.

Fire officials say neighbors immediately notified the fire and police departments.

Omaha fire officials took the opportunity to remind people to use caution with using fireworks and pay attention to the direction of the wind.
