Three playgrounds in Johnson County’s Blue Valley School District have been torched over a recent five-day span.
All of the fires have been set late at night or early in the morning.
Two of the fires occurred at schools in Overland Park and the third in Olathe.
Blue Valley officials told The Kansas City Star about 80 percent of all three playgrounds were destroyed.
The district hopes to have the playgrounds rebuilt by the start of school, but they also get plenty of use by neighborhood children during the summer.
