On November 25, 2020 at 2:12 PM, Prescott Valley police officers and Central Arizona Fire & Medical Authority (CAFMA) responded to a report of a house fire in the 4100 block of Kachina Way.  An officer quickly entered the residence and extinguished the fire located in a bedroom.  Investigation revealed the fire was started by a 3-year-old playing with a lighter.  The 3-year-old, along with three other juvenile siblings, were unsupervised at the time.  Fortunately, no one was injured in this incident.  

The Prescott Valley Police Department would like to remind everyone to be fire conscious this season, to keep matches and lighters away from children, and provide proper supervision for children.  For more information on fire safety, see CAFMA’s website at https://www.cazfire.org/prevention/fire-safety-tips/
