Boise firefighters have had a particularly busy summer but one early morning blaze is receiving particular attention: one that destroyed a neighborhood playground.
Boise Police and Fire are investigating what they say was the work of an arsonist at the Nottingham Neighborhood Park on N. Decatur Dr. in West Boise.
"The neighbors I talked to are devastated," said Det. Mike Hill, arson investigator for Boise Police. "They say the neighborhood itself put a lot of effort into getting the park and the playground renovated and now it's a total loss."
Neighbors spotted flames coming from playground equipment just before 4 a.m. Firefighters said an entire jungle gym was destroyed. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 208-343-COPS.
