Fire at Austin school destroys playground

Posted on April 23rd, 2010 No Comments

A fire last week broke out at a playground at an Austin school, completely destroying play equipment and damaging nearby trees.

After the fire, police soon announced that they held two juveniles in custody on the suspicion of starting the blaze at Brooke Elementary school in east Austin. Police state that the two juveniles started the fire early in the night of April 11 and are now facing charges of “criminal mischief by arson,” a 3rd degree felony. Luckily no one was injured in the accident, but now the school must clean up the mess and buy new equipment. School officials say they do not know now how long it will take before the school children and community members will be able to use the playground again.
