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 boyâ€™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. Weâ€™re trying to imagine the conversations going on under that roof. What would you do if your kid did something like that?
