A 13 year old girl has been arrested for starting a fire in a restroom at a Waupun park over the weekend.
Shortly before 5pm Saturday firefighters were called to Johnsons West End Park women’s restroom area. When officers arrived the fire was out. A few minutes later on the opposite end of the park there was an ambulance call for a young female suffering from smoke inhalation. The 13 year old girl was treated and transported to the hospital. Waupun police chief Dale Heeringa says the girl eventually admitted to starting
paper products in the restroom on fire with a lighter. The teen will be referred to Dodge Co. Juvenile Intake on charges of Reckless use of Burning Materials. No damage was reported to the city owned restroom where this incident took place.
