Arson investigators are looking into a pair of fires in Hamilton mountain parks over the weekend.
The first of them occured at about 4 o'clock on Sunday morning --- when an unknown suspect set fire to the slide and other playground equipment in Elmar Park on Brigade Drive.
Councillor Scott Duvall has asked public works staff to report back with plans for replacing the damaged equipment.
Firefighters responded to the second blaze at about 4 o'clock on Monday morning in Trenholme Park on the east mountain. Police note that again, someone had set fire to the playground equipment.
Total damage is estimated at about 70 thousand dollars.
