LEWISTON — A woman baby-sitting her three grandchildren at an apartment building on Blake Street suffered burns to her hands and feet when she tried to put out a bed fire, officials said.

The woman, who wasn't named, refused medical treatment at the scene, Fire Inspector Paul Ouellette said.

He said the three grandchildren, all juveniles, were playing with matches in the bedroom of one of the units in a 10-family apartment building at 226 Blake St.

The building was in the process of being evacuated when firefighters quickly extinguished the fire and removed the burned bed and box spring from the apartment. Damage was limited to the bed, Ouellette said.

He said the Office of the Maine State Fire Marshal was called to investigate because of the burns suffered by the grandmother.
