TEMPLE - Around 6 p.m. on Wednesday, 3 firefighting units responded to a playground fire at Wilson Park, which resulted in extensive damage to the playground itself and a nearby tree. Temple Police also responded to the call. The damage is estimated at $250,000. No one was injured. The playground equipment, which was installed last fall, was not part of the 2015 City of Temple's Parks Bond Package and will need to be replaced.
