Jerusalem Children Play with Fire; Torch Sukkah

Children, playing with fire, set a Sukkah ablaze, Monday morning, on Igrot Moshe Street in Jerusalem. The fire got out of control, igniting the booth built for this week's Sukkot holiday.

The fire spread to a neighboring yard, causing damage before two companies of firefighters combined to gain control of the blaze. No injuries were reported.
