WESTFIELD, Ind. - A child caused a Westfield day care to catch fire Thursday evening, officials said.
Crews responded to Amiguitos day care in the 200 block of Jersey Street just before 6 p.m., officials with the Westfield Fire Department said.
Officials said the fire was caused by a child who turned on the electric stove while a plastic tray from a high chair was on top of the stove.
A responding police officer was treated at the scene before being transported to the hospital for smoke inhalation. The officer has since been released from the hospital.
The day care will be closed Friday to allow for cleanup.
