RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A playground fire at a Richmond elementary school remains under investigation.

Crews tell us they were first called out around 4:00 a.m. Sunday for reports of a building fire in the 200 block of North 28th Street, but found the playground behind Woodville Elementary School in flames.

The fire was out in a matter of minutes, but the playground was destroyed. We're told the equipment had just been installed three weeks ago.

Investigators are calling the fire suspicious, but haven't determined a cause at this time.

If you have any information that can help investigators, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.
