ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany woman and her nine month old son miraculously escaped injuries Sunday night, when her three year old daughter set the bed they were sleeping in on fire.
Three year old Serenity Redding knows she is not supposed to play with lighters, but just before 8:00 Sunday evening at her home on South Davis Street, Serenity got a lighter and set on fire the bed where her mother and brother were asleep.
Shantivus Strum said the flames woke her up.
Strum said "I was laying down in the bed, and I felt some heat. The air conditioner was on, too. So I felt the heat and I though I was dreaming for a minute. I woke up and saw the fire at the end of the bed. So I grabbed my 9 month old baby and we ran out of the house."
There were nine people in the house when the fire started, and several people poured water on the bed trying to put out the flames. Firefighters say the home sustained about $2000 in damages.
Little Serenity says she has learned a lesson, and will never play with lighters again.
