GLENDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

Glendale firefighters said children playing with matches started a house fire Monday evening.

The children, ages 3 and 5 years old, were in a bedroom at a home in the area of 47th and Olive avenues about 7 p.m. and set a stack of clothes on fire, said Michael Young of the Glendale Fire Department.

The fire spread to a stereo speaker and other items before the mother could grab the clothes and put them in a bathroom sink, Young said.

Another family member tried to put out the fire with a garden hose and suffered a minor burn to her forearm. She was treated at the house, Young said.

Young said children start 56,300 fires on average in the U.S., resulting in 110 civilian deaths, 880 civilian injuries and $286 million in direct property damage per year.
