A little girl set her mother’s car on fire Monday night with a lighter and a toothpick.
Vacaville police posted a picture of the charred, four-door sedan in the north part of town on Facebook. Officers said the 10-year-old was playing with a lighter inside the family vehicle when she lit the toothpick.
The hot toothpick then ignited the interior of the car. Alert neighbors put the mini-blaze out with fire extinguishers just before firefighters arrived.
No injuries were reported.
