Fireworks blamed for Miss. house fire

BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Officials say kids playing with fireworks caused a fire on the outside of a house in Harrison County north of Biloxi.

Pat Sullivan, fire marshal for Harrison County, tells The Sun Herald that firefighters were able to contain the fire to the outside of the house Sunday and keep it from causing significant damage.

Sullivan said the fire was contained within 20 minutes and no charges are anticipated. He said the kids were just playing, and it was an accident.
