COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- Crews battled a five-acre fire in East Naples Friday afternoon, after a witness said children were playing with gasoline in the woods.

The flames were quickly extinguished, but were close to homes behind Sitterley Lane, causing alarm. Dry conditions helped the blaze spread quickly.

The captain on the scene said, with only one witness, there would be no investigation to speak of.
