The Washington Post - - METRO - — Dana Hedg­peth

A 3-year-old boy was left unat­tended Tues­day morn­ing in a mini­van that caught fire out­side his day care in North­east Wash­ing­ton, au­thor­i­ties said.

He was taken to a hos­pi­tal for “symp­toms re­lated to smoke in­hala­tion,” ac­cord­ing to Doug Buchanan, a D.C. fire depart­ment spokesman.

The mini­van was found on fire in the 5100 block of Nan­nie He­len Bur­roughs Av­enue NE.

As fire­fight­ers put out the fire, one of them ei­ther saw or heard the child in the third row of the ve­hi­cle, Buchanan said.
