EL PASO, Texas (AP) - An El Paso park has been closed after vandals set fire to playground equipment, causing an estimated $120,000 in damages.

Authorities say the blaze is the second in the last three years at the half-acre Indian Heights Park on the city’s east side.

The fire also burned nearby grass and trees.

The city’s fire marshal office is investigating.
