The Boise Police Department is investigating a playground fire at Castle Hills Park they believe may have been set intentionally. Early in the morning on Feb. 6, Boise Fire responded to a large playground fire on the 5000 block of N. Eugene St. Fire crews were able to successfully extinguish the flames, but not before the playground equipment was burned beyond repair. Boise Police officers were called to investigate the scene after an initial assessment led the fire crews to consider that the fire may have been set intentionally. “This is a very disappointing situation, and we are working closely with Boise Police, Boise Fire, and the city’s Risk and Safety team on next steps,” said Boise Parks and Recreation Director Doug Holloway.
