Woodland Girl Burned While Playing With Fireworks

WOODLAND (CBS13) – A 6-year-old girl in Woodland was burned Wednesday night while playing with fireworks, say police.

The child was in the 800 block of Harvard Bend playing with a sparkler when her clothes caught fire. The flames were put out, but not before the girl was burned. She was taken to the UCD Medical center for treatment of her injuries, which are non life-threatening.

Police say the sparkler the girl was playing with was legal, and say she was being supervised by her parents at the time.

Police are investigating the incident as an accident.
