Child Injured in House Fire

An Amarillo child is recovering from burns to the neck and hands this afternoon after a house caught fire. 

It happened at this house in the 700 block of south Mississippi a little after 2:00 this morning.

Amarillo fire fighters say a space heater placed too close to a bed started the fire.

The house does have working smoke alarms.

Officials say the fire did about 15-thousand dollars in damages.
