LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say a 2-year-old girl is recovering from burns to her hands and feet after she climbed onto smoldering coals in a fire pit at a Los Angeles beach.

County Fire Captain Brian Jordan says the child was taken from Dockweiler State Beach to a hospital Saturday afternoon.

Jordan says there was no active fire in the pit, but the coals were still hot.

Officials urged parents to keep children at least 20 feet away from fire pits.
