A 10-year-old boy left home alone while his parents went shopping escaped serious injury when he accidentally set fire to his Choi Hung flat as he played with matches yesterday.


The boy suffered minor burns after a kerosene stove tipped over in the kitchen of the 20th-floor flat in Pik Ha House, Choi Hung Estate, at 9am. The boy was in stable condition in hospital last night.
