Posted: Updated:
 KENNEWICK, WA - Heavy black smoke filled the sky above Kennewick Sunday afternoon. The Kennewick Police Department said someone may have set the Santiago Estates playground on fire. It had rubber flooring which made the smoke so dark.

The Kennewick Fire Department arrived at 2105 N. Steptoe Street soon after the fire started around 1:30 p.m and quickly put the fire out. The fire caused an estimated $10,000 worth of damage.

Officers searched the area and witnesses told them a young boy rode away "in a hurry" on his bicycle soon after the fire started. Police are calling the fire arson and say a ten-year-old boy is the suspect.
