The Country Lakes Family Campground in Geauga County was vandalized and set on fire Saturday morning

MONTVILLE TOWNSHIP, Ohio - The Country Lakes Family Campground in Geauga County was vandalized and set on fire Saturday morning.

Lt. Hiscox of the Geauga County Sheriff's Department said firefighters responded to a fully engulfed cabin on the campground located in Montville Township on the Grand Army of the Republic Highway around 7 a.m.

It appears that suspects kicked in the doors and ransacked approximately 20-30 campers within the campground and then set fire to one of the cabins near the back of the campground.

The cabin is a total loss and investigators are on scene trying to determine what caused the fire and if it was in fact arson.

Police are also in the process of contacting the owners of the campers to compile a list of items that were stolen.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Geauga County Sheriff's Office at (440) 635-1234.
