PARIS, Tenn. — Firefighters said the $35,000 in damage done Monday afternoon to an apartment complex on Harrison Lane in Paris was due to a 4-year-old playing with a lighter. Firefighters said smoke detectors alerted the mother, who was sleeping on the couch, and two other children in the home. No injuries were reported and no charges will be filed, but firefighters said they plan to spend time with the children to talk about fire safety.
