FORT WALTON BEACH- A 5-year-old boy from north Florida has been ordered to attend a fire-prevention class after starting a fire with toilet paper in the bathroom of his home.
Investigators say the boy started the fire using a lighter left on the bathroom sink of the Fort Walton Beach home.
Ocean City-Wright Fire Department Battalion Chief Scott Funchess says children's names are typically not listed with the state fire marshal's office until they are at least 7 years old, but the boy had had problems with fire before.
That's why the child will attend classes at the department.
