A third teenage girl in El Paso has been arrested for arson in the last four days.

Tuesday morning a 13 year-old girl was charged for intentionally setting a fire at a home in Northeast El Paso.

No one was hurt in the fire and damage was minimal.

You may remember Friday, a 13 and 15-year old girl were arrested for two separate school fires.

The El Paso Fire Department has a few safety suggestions for parents.

First, store matches and lighters out of children's reach and sight.

Never use lighters or matches as a source of amusement for children and explain to them that they are tools for adults.

Always use child resistant lighters.

Don't leave lighters or matches in a bedroom or any place a child may go without supervision.
