In brief: Yes

A common definition includes development of a brief <5min seizure that occurs in kids 6m-6yr associated with rapid rise of temperature.
A common scene is a child found shaking & parents realizing they were febrile when they pick them up. More details would be needed to properly label the event but it could occur.
