Fire Destroys Playground Equipment In Lakeside Park

A late Monday afternoon fire in Lakeside Park destroyed some playground equipment. Fond du Lac Fire Rescue was on the scene just before 4:20 p.m. Monday, near Harbor View Dr., for a report of playground equipment on fire. Crews managed to put the fire out but not before the equipment was destroyed. Fire Chief Peter O’Leary called the incident “quite disturbing.” City Police and Fire Investigators were on the scene and searched the area for anyone that may have been in the area at the time. There were no injuries reported as a result of the fire, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation. (Photo credit Marlaine Santana Triplett)
