Ok if they had a fire in the tent it probably would have already caught on fire or killed them from the smoke.

you know, back in the day, they lived without these things perfectly fine...and now its considered a reason to call CPS. Its a sad day we are living in now. However, if they have a fire "inside" the tent...that could be very very bad.

Call on them. My fucked up mil let people put up a tent in their back yard to live with 2 kids under 5 cuz they ate to lazy to get a job and support their kids.

If you were a real friend you would offer them somewhere to stay. With that said I dont see how its possible to have a fire in a tent without the tent burning.

LOL OK now I should explain further.  My friends are full blood Cheyenne Indians.  Their DD (only girl) has a class project that she and her family have to live in a traditional wigwam for a week.  Every kid in the class has to do this.  They have to live like the old ones to a point.  They have done this 3 times now.  The kids love it and so do my friends we are going to visit them next summer and we are going to give it a try :) Oh BTW coolers and they cook over the fire.

Instead of calling CPS, why don't you help your "friends." Duh.
