It is not uncommon for young children to see fires as exciting and entertaining, rather than destructive and harmful. This dangerous attraction can lead to fire setting and fire play, both of which can cause extensive damage, serious injuries or even death. While many children express curiosity in fire, it is important to recognize when this interest develops into fascination and seek professional help immediately.
Redings Mill Fire District has trained staff that can assist if you have concerns about a child’s interest in fire. We can help determine if the child should attend a Juvenile Fire Setter program and if so, can provide that training program at our station.
Please contact us if you have need assistance at 417-624-2715.
