A fire this morning at a Lansing residence may have been caused by children playing with combustible materials, a fire department official said.
That's the preliminary finding. But Rick Huhn, chief of Leavenworth Fire District No. 1, said the fire is still under investigation.
The fire was reported at 1:43 a.m. today at 318 Fawn Valley Court. No injuries were reported.
"Everybody was out of the house (when firefighters arrived)," Huhn said.
He said a smoke detector had alerted people in the house.
The fire apparently started in a potted plant located in the dining room area. Huhn said the fire spread to curtains and a window frame.
"It was confined to the window frame," he said.
He said firefighters had the fire under control within about 10 minutes.
Huhn estimated the loss at $10,000.
