Kids playing with matches is what firefighters say caused a house fire in Northeast El Paso.
The fire broke out around two this afternoon in the 4800 block of Sierra Madre Drive.
Firefighters say kids, all under the age ten, were playing with matches by a shed in the back yard when it caught fire.
Investigators say flames almost spread to nearby electrical lines.
That forced firefighters to cut off power to ten homes in the area.
Power has since been restored.
