Children in one west El Paso neighborhood don't have a place to play since someone set fire to a local playground. Crime Stoppers was looking for the people who did it.

The fire completely destroyed the playground on Palmdale and Laurel Springs the morning of July 14.

Authorities are looking for a group of teenagers who may be responsible.

"A witness did say that four teenagers were seen running from the park about that time. It's not known if they were involved but investigators are looking for those people," said James Klaes with Crime Stoppers of El Paso.

The four teens ran to a house in a nearby neighborhood.

If you have any information that may help authorities make an arrest in this case, call Crime Stoppers at 566-TIPS.
