VIDEO: Lorain school playground set on fire

LORAIN, Ohio - Video shows a Lorain playground that residents say has become a spot full of trouble being lit on fire.

In the surveillance video given to NewsChannel5 by Lorain City School, flames engulf a pink slide on the playground at Admiral King Elementary School.

Lorain School Superintendent Tom Tucker said they are investigating arsons and other incidents on area playgrounds.

"They're having sex on the playground. They're doing drugs on the playground. They're drinking, they're cussing, they're fighting and there's no control on this playground at all," Lorain resident Rick Watchorn told NewsChannel5.

Tucker is calling for a special community meeting on May 29, looking for solutions to what he calls a community-wide issue.
