FLAGSTAFF -- Residents of a Flagstaff neighborhood scurried to put out a fire started by three juveniles burning ants with a magnifying glass.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that the juveniles included 13- and 14-year-old girls as well as a boy whose age wasn't stated.

The two girls attempted to stomp out the fire while the boy fled when the fire started Wednesday.

A neighbor told police he heard a commotion and saw flames when he went outside.

The man strung together garden hoses and sprayed water on the fire, while another neighbor used a bucket to toss water on the fire.

Firefighters arrived and hosed down the area to make sure the 10-by-20-foot fire was fully out.

The girls were referred to juvenile court to face allegations of reckless burning.
