A little more than a week ago a playground in the Freetown Village in Pasadena was set on fire.

"When the fire fighters got there they did find the playground fully engulfed in fire. There was enough heat coming of this fire that it actually started to melt the siding on two nearby residents," Officials said.

The suspects were captured on video, which can be seen above.

"One of the suspects turns and looks toward the camera before he turns and goes stands by a gazebo and then the second suspects turns and runs towards the camera at the end of the video."

Besides the danger of a fire this size to anyone nearby, this affects the whole community.

"There's a bigger impact than that now it's deprived that community of that resource now going into the summer when you would expect it to be used a lot."

If you have any information on the suspects or the fire, you're asked to contact police.
