GREENSBORO - The Pinecroft Sedgefield Fire Department and Safe Kids North Carolina demonstrated Monday just how dangerousfire and gasoline are when combined.

Believe it or not,a recent survey stated that one in five parents who store gas at home use it to start or accelerate a fire.

Officials say about 1,500 children are injured in gasoline fires each year.

Cheryl Miller brought her six year old son to learn about fire safety. She said, "It's a good opportunity for me to give him an example of talking about fire and fire safety, it's a good chance for me to give him an example of what he needs to do and not do with regard to fire."
