Seems one of the dozen wildfires plaguing Southerm California last week was started by a kid playing with matches in his backyard. Fanned by high winds, the blaze ultimately consumed 38,000 acres and burned down 21 homes, although ironically, it spared the boy’s home. Police have turned the matter over to the district attorney, and the child, a boy under age 13, has been released to his parents. We’re trying to imagine the conversations going on under that roof. What would you do if your kid did something like that?
