NIAGARA FALLS - A group of juveniles is suspected of setting fires Thursday night that damaged the synthetic turf of two Niagara Falls School District softball fields.

Police said that a group of seven juveniles were seen walking to the fields at the Packard Court sports complex around 8:20 p.m. Thursday, moments before a fire was reported. An older juvenile, believed to be between 14 and 16 years of age, was then seen riding a bicycle to an adjoining field and starting a fire near home plate.

The varsity and junior varsity softball fields sustained an estimated $5,000 worth of damage to the artificial turf before the fires were brought under control. The incident remains under investigation.
