Students on winter break may return to an unpleasant surprise in the New Year. Someone set fire to a playground at a school in northeast Harris County. It happened on the campus of Normandy Crossing Elementary off Normandy. The play equipment has been nearly completely destroyed.

Firefighters found a basketball and backpack near the area, but don't know if it's connected. They also hope surveillance video will help them identify someone.
