A 10-year-old Costa Mesa boy fell chest-deep into a steam vent here Wednesday, suffering second-degree burns over 10% of his body. The boy, who was visiting Hawaii with his soccer team, had wandered off a park trail near the sulfur banks and slipped into the steaming crack in the ground, said Mardi Lane, park ranger. He held onto grass to keep from falling all the way inside the vent, she said.

A 5-year-old boy suffered minor burns Tuesday when a homemade acid bomb exploded on a school playground, the Sheriff's Department said. The explosive, made up of chemicals packed into a plastic water bottle, apparently was left by someone the previous night on the Castille Elementary School grounds, Sheriff's Lt. Tom Garner said. The boy was among several children at the school participating in a YMCA day-care center.

All that 4-year-old Madelyn Guerrero wanted to be is like Grace, her half-sister--even though she almost burned to death trying. Grace Ruiz, 16, loves the color purple and so does Madelyn. Grace began listening to Whitney Houston's latest album and Madelyn suddenly adored the pop diva, memorizing the words to several songs. "That's Gracie's song," she'll burst out with a smile whenever a Houston tune comes on the radio.
