PEMBROKE PARK, FLA. – A group of children ignited leftover fireworks, causing a fire to spark in a home under renovation, authorities said Thursday.
The Pembroke Park home in the 3000 block of Southwest 37th Avenue was vacant and undergoing renovations when it caught fire at around 3 p.m., authorities said.
Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue officials said the fireworks were being shot off by children, and the fire it caused quickly spread from a couch.
The fire eventually burned the garage door and spread to the attic, authorities said.
A neighbor reported the fire and firefighters quickly arrived at the scene and extinguished the blaze.
No injuries were reported.
