Mulch pile fire at Granville Gude Park Friday was 'accidental'

A fire reported in Granville Gude Park Friday afternoon was accidental and is not believed to be arson, Laurel city spokesman Pete Piringer said.

The fire was discovered in a mulch pile near the outdoor stage in the park. There was no damage and no injuries.

Piringer said city officials are "very concerned" about the city's parking, following three fires at playgrounds earlier this month.

"We are asking folks to be vigilant around our parks," Piringer said.
