Arson Suspected in Fire at Plymouth Playground
PLYMOUTH, Minn. (AP) – Plymouth authorities say a playground fire that caused an estimated $200,000 in damage appears to have been intentionally set.
The fire was reported Friday about 2 a.m. at Plymouth Creek Park. The damage included new playground equipment worth between $80,000 and $130,000. Police say none of the equipment could be salvaged.
No one was injured in the blaze. Authorities are investigating the case as apparent arson.
