Surveillance footage shows suspects in Imagination Station fire
Thanks to surveillance video, two suspects were seen near Troutdale's Imagination Station just before a portion was destroyed by fire.
About 4 a.m. Saturday, April 9, the popular playground erupted into flame, targeted at the wooden play structure. Since the news broke, the community has rallied around the park they helped rebuild in 2012 offering support and funding.
While the surveillance footage is grainy at best, Multnomah County Sheriff's Office deputies say they hope someone might recognize the suspects enough to form a lead.
Gresham Fire Investigator Kyle Stewart said the fire's origin was near the tire stack near the south end of the property, likely started with matches or another incendiary device.
The MCSO is offering a $1,000 reward to anyone who can provide information leading to an arrest and conviction.
Donations are being accepted at Troutdale City Hall, 219 E. Historic Columbia River Hwy.
Anyone with information should contact the sheriff's office at 503-261-2847.
