A child’s Christmas gift is part of what set his family’s front yard on fire in McKinney.

The boy’s parents thought their son was going to use a magnifying glass for reading, but instead, he wanted to try and spark things on fire.

The 12-year-old said he was trying to use his magnifying glass to light newspaper on fire.

When it actually happened, the newspaper fire spread to the grass, sending the front yard into flames and smoke within minutes.
