Fire destroys playground

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Children along Bandroom Lane were among onlookers this evening as the playground at Pig’s Field Park in Pembroke went up in smoke.

It took six firefighters and two trucks to quell the blaze, centred on playground equipment at the popular open space in North Village.

A Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said firefighters responded just after 8.20pm.

He added: “On arrival fire crews saw a playground completely involved in flames.

“The fire was extinguished by firefighters wearing breathing apparatus.

The cause of the fire is unknown and is being investigated by the fire investigator.“

Police last month assembled a task force to deal with a string of suspicious fires targeting mainly vehicles but also at least two buildings in the parish over the last several weeks.
