(KSL News) Teens playing with fireworks started a grass fire in Fruit Heights today.

Fire officials say they were lighting fireworks near the side of the road when a hillside went up in flames.

They left to get something to extinguish the fire, but by the time they got back, it was too large.

It burned close to several homes, but fire crews were able to put it out before it caused any damage.

Fire officials say one of the teens was arrested and faces a charge of reckless burning.
