A tough lesson for two Bend kids who were playing with fire. They sparked a small wildfire and got a ticket from police. Officials say Thursday afternoon's fire started after they dipped a tennis ball in Tiki oil, lit it on fire and kicked it around. The brushfire was in a vacant lot west of Mount Washington Drive, near Shields Drive and south of Shevlin Park Road in northwest Bend. The fire burned one tenth of an acre, and he nearest home was 150 yards away. Both were ticketed for reckless burning and released to their parents.
