CASPER, Wyo. — Firefighters believe a girl curious about fire is responsible for setting seven small fires in her Casper neighborhood this summer.
The latest fire in the Paradise Valley neighborhood came Wednesday night. Fire Capt. Justin Smith said that an investigator responding to the fire discovered that a girl who lived there had some curiosity playing with fire. He said they're confident that the fires in the area are now going to stop.
Officials don't plan to pursue charges. The fires in yards didn't cause any significant damage and neighbors have expressed support for the girl and her family.
