Edinburg firefighters and Hidalgo County fire officials are investigating an arson at a property that used to be a Waterpark.
Around 10 pm Monday night authorities responded to a blaze that burned a pile of brush at the parking lot of what used to be ‘super splash’ water park.
The property is located at the intersection of Freddy Gonzalez and Raul Longoria.
It took fire fighters about 5 hours and close to 100 thousand gallons of water to put out the flames.
Nobody was injured in the incident, however large smoke clouds did reach a nearby residential area. Investigators are looking for the culprits.
“We got just one tip of a silver fusion car that was parked there right before the fire. One individual got down, walked around the piles and left. So that’s the only tip we have. Supposedly a juvenile to a teenager that walked out,” explains Omar Garza, Edinburg fire marshal.
If you have any information regarding the suspects you are asked to call the Edinburg fire department at 956-383-7691.
