5 kids with water guns extinguish neighbor's deck fire

Five kids with water guns put out a neighbor’s deck fire in West Fargo on Tuesday, authorities said.

“The first unit on scene found the remains of a planter that had caught fire and extended in the siding and wood decking adjacent to the planter, however the fire was out,” West Fargo Police Department stated.  “It was later determined that five neighborhood kids had seen the fire, alerted the occupant, and then used their water guns to control the blaze before the fire department arrived.”

Firefighters said the quick thinking and fast reaction from the kids saved the building from extensive fire damage, and quite possibly, the life of the occupant in the apartment.
