Early Morning Fire at Playground Causes $20,000 in Damage


BUFFALO, N.Y. - Buffalo Fire Department investigators need the public's help to find out who set fire to a playground.

The playground at the Northwest Buffalo Community Center on Lawn Avenue was damaged after it was set on fire at about 2 a.m. Saturday. No injuries were reported but fire investigators say about $20,000 worth of damage was done.

Now they're asking for the public's help to figure out who's responsible.

As Two On Your Side's Andrea Marvin learned from North District Councilman Joe Golombek, it's a devastating loss for residents who say this neighborhood has dealt with enough.

The playground belongs to the Head Start program at the Northwest Community Center, which provides social services and is somewhat of a hub for this area. Golombek says whoever set the fire is just hurting the kids.
