The East Grand Forks Fire Department, as well as, the East Grand Forks Police Department are calling this morning's fire "suspicious."

Fire Cheif Randy Gust says the department has ruled out anything electrical or heat-related because there is nothing on the playground of that type.

Fire engulfed the popular Sherlock Forest playground structure in East Grand Forks this morning. The East Grand Forks Fire Department is on the scene, which is a large, mostly wooden complex located in the 500 block of 4th Avenue Northwest near the EGF Library.

The Sherlock Forest playground was constructed in April of 2003.

The city says 3/4 of the equipment at the park is a total loss. The cause of the fire is under instigation by the East Grand Forks Police and Fire departments.
