Fire play with sign post fizzles early for kids

Kids try to light sign post on fire, get caught by neighbour, get talking-to by police

A resident stopped two youths before their fire play went too far.

The kids were spotted on March 2 around 8 p.m. on the dock at the foot of James Island Road. The witness saw two youths wrap strands of string around a sign post and light the string on fire. The non-flammable post did not catch fire. Central Saanich officers spoke with the two youths before sending them on their way.
