Toilet set ablaze at Freeland Park

A single portable toilet at Freeland Park was set on fire in the early morning hours Saturday, Dec. 10.

Firefighters from Fire District 3 extinguished the fire in about 30 minutes with a single engine. The damage was estimated at $1,200.

No other property at the park was damaged in the fire.

The park at the southern end of Holmes Harbor has been the frequent target of vandals over the years. This past weekend, street signs around the park were also pulled out and knocked over.
