According to investigators, a 7-year-old boy once credited with saving his family from a house fire is the one who set it.

Firefighters say the little boy was playing with matches when he started the fire at the home in University City Tuesday morning.

The boy and his family made it out safely.

The fire caused $30,000 in damage.

Investigators referred the family to a counseling program for young fire starters. :huh:

I thought most little boys were fascinated with fire. I know I was. Still am a little.
