After fire, elementary school gets new playground

Webster Elementary school got a new playground this week after its old one was destroyed by a fire in July.

Susan Bedi, spokeswoman for Fresno Unified School District, said the district chipped in $17,000 to replace the play equipment. The new structure is made of fiberglass and steel.

Bedi said police suspect the fire on July 8 was the result of arson. She said no arrest has been made.
