A 9-year-old boy playing with a lighter starts a fire that displaces three families.

Fire companies were called to Dalton, near Nunda, at about 10:45 a.m. Firefighters were able to bring the fire under control, but the house did sustain severe smoke, fire and water damage.

There were no injuries reported.

Investigators say the child, who they have chosen not to indentify because of his age, was playing with a lighter when the carpet caught fire and spread across the floor to a bed and throughout the bedroom.
