Lafayette firefighters were called out to Timothy Drive Monday evening after they were called to fight a fire in the bedroom of a home.

Fire Department Spokesman Alton Trahan says the woman and her three children were all able to get out of the home safely, but a bedroom and its contents were destroyed by fire.  The other rooms in the home sustained heave smoke and water damage.

Trahan says a 3-year-old was playing with a lighter in the bedroom and set the bedding on fire.

The 4-year-old daughter then told their mother who called firefighters.

Investigators have ruled the cause of the fire was accident.
