Stowe Playground Closed Due to Fire

This morning the Stowe Landing play structure caught fire.  The Fire Inspector for St. Charles City determined it was caused by spontaneous combustion of natural vegetation – which apparently is common during the month of May.  The playground will be closed until further notice because it is not structurally sound.  It has been taped off & new parts are being ordered.  We will announce when it is reopened.  In the meantime, if you see anyone on it, please advise them it is closed.    Questions should be directed to the GA at 636.916.2085.  Thank you for your cooperation & especially thank you to Brooke Wallis for putting out the fire & notifying me! Great neighbors in New Town!
