Fireworks are being blamed for a Chandler playground closure.

The Paseo Vista Recreation Area playground. located at 3850 S. McQueen Road in Chandler will be closed until further notice because of fire damage. The fire appears to have been caused by fireworks that were set off nearby, igniting the wood chips in the playground area.

The fire destroyed two slides, melted rubber safety surfacing, burned a sunshade and caused damage to concrete, poles and railings.

While the playground is off-limits for now, the park is still open to visitors who can engage in the park’s disk golf course, archery range, dog park, pavilions and walking trails. The timeline to fix the damage is to be determined.
