Billings’ Rose Park Arsonist Still at Large
I'm sure I am not the only one who is bummed out about what happened to Rose Park last week. My daughter and I have had many fun days there, but I'm not sure if we'll have the option this summer. If they have to get the building repaired in order to allow access to the pool, there is much work to be done. About $200,000 worth of work.
I know some people have a "thing" about public pools, but Rose Park is a nice, well-maintained facility. The price has certainly gone up over the past couple of decades, but it is still relatively cheap and kids love it. I'm not sure why someone would feel the need to maliciously burn it.
Arson is a serious crime. Even if it's a structure that isn't occupied, firefighters are always at risk of injury. If you know something about this crime, don't let them get away with it. Report what you know to the Detective Division of the Billings PD at 657-8473.
