Juvenile Firesetters

Children playing with fire set more than 20,000 fires every year. That is an average of almost 400 fires each week. Fires started by children playing cause an average of 150 deaths and nearly 1,000 injuries every year. Children usually play with fire in a hidden place such as a bedroom or closet. If you suspect your child is playing with fire, please contact our Juvenile Firesetter Intervention Specialist.
