CONCORD ó Local law enforcement officers are seeking information about several arsons at Frank Liske Park that occurred last weekend.
The intentionally set fires destroyed the boat storage building on the dock, damaged a picnic shelter connected to the barn and damaged some natural areas. The damage is estimated at $27,000.
Cabarrus County officials gave the following account:
Sometime in the early morning of March 14, a fire occurred at the barn underneath one of the attached picnic areas. Picnic tables were stacked up and set on fire. The Cabarrus County Fire Marshal’s Office was dispatched at 8:55 a.m. at the request of the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office.
Another fire occurred early the next morning, March 15, destroying the boat storage building located on the dock by the lake. The building and its contents are a complete loss.
An adjacent picnic shelter also was damaged by heat from the fire. A small brush fire also occurred around the base of several trees near the Andy Hartsell Picnic Shelter.
Jackson Park Fire Department was dispatched at 7:20 a.m. to investigate these fires.
Also, the morning of March 15, fire officials responded to a debris fire along the roadway on Rembrandt Road in the Picture Park subdivision adjacent to Frank Liske Park. A gate connects this subdivision to Frank Liske Park with access at the nature trail along the lake.
 Officers from Concord Fire Department will distribute door hangers in the Picture Park subdivision next week to alert residents of the arsons in hopes of obtaining information to solve these crimes.
 Anyone with information about any of the arsons committed in or around Frank Liske Park is asked to call the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office at 704-920-3000.
Individuals also can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward up to $1,000 by calling Cabarrus Area Crime Stoppers at 704-93-CRIME (932-7463).
