Fire Set Near Waters Elementary Playground Equipment


A 15-year-old Fond du Lac boy was arrested Sunday evening after trying to start a fire near the playground equipment at Waters Elementary School. Assistant Police Chief Steve Klein says they got a call at 5:20 p.m. about three teenage boys who were seen at the school trying to start a fire. He says when police officers and firefighters arrived they found that someone tried to start a fire by setting a glove on fire. There was no damage to the playground equipment and the fire was already out when authorities arrived. The teens were spotted running from the area and police made an arrest. A 15-year-old boy was referred to juvenile authorities for negligent handling of burning materials and the two others were released to their parents.

Parents do not know how to discipline their precious little kids now days. These kids should be publicly humiliated and made to provide community service. Their parents should be fined heavily. I wonder if these little punks didn't commit the fire at the other playground this past year?
