TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The Tulsa Police Department is searching for three people believed to have been involved in an after-hours fire at an elementary school playground.

The department on Tuesday released footage of three people seen walking across a nearby basketball court before the fire broke out early Aug. 5 at Eliot Elementary School. A glimpse of fire can be seen shortly thereafter on the surveillance video.

Authorities say the Tulsa Fire Department is investigating the incident as a suspected arson.

No one was injured, but the fire caused an estimated $70,000 in damage to the playground equipment.
