ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Arlington School District will spend $200,000 to replace wood chips with pea gravel at 35 playgrounds after a fire in which spontaneous combustion of the wood fiber was blamed, the superintendent said.

Surveillance video showed that nobody was around to start the fire at an elementary school playground last week, officials said.

The fire melted the plastic and metal equipment, causing $35,000 in damage, reported KXAS-TV in Dallas.
