Magic Trick Starts Fire at Children’s Museum

 

Wilmington Fire Fighters Put Out Flash Paper Fire

Fire investigators are blaming a worker’s experimentation with flash paper for a fire that shut down the Wilmington Children’s Museum, in Wilmington, North Carolina.

No children were in the museum at the time and no one was injured. The fire investigators described the ignition source as “something called flash paper, which is used in magic tricks and creates sparks.”

The museum contains a science exhibit with live turtles and reptiles but fire officials believe all of the creatures survived.

Unfortunately, fire fighters were forced to shut down several lanes of the busy Market Street during the height of rush hour.

Be careful out there with that thing called “flash paper.” You can read the coverage by the local television station here.
