CRITTENDEN, Ky. - Northern Kentucky residents are passing out fliers Tuesday in hopes that someone has information about a fire that destroyed a Little League clubhouse.
Someone set fire to the Bobby Gibson Field House in Crittenden on Monday. The fire was reported by park employees when they arrived at work in the morning.
"We're going to go on foot and drop people off in different neighborhoods and go door-to-door," said parks director Tabatha Clemons. "We want to make sure that the entire community knows that if they have any information we need to know."
A $1,000 reward is also being offered for information that may lead to an arrest.
The building, which housed the Grant County Little League headquarters, will be demolished Tuesday afternoon. The league stored fundraising materials like program books and T-shirts along with trophies and concessions to be sold during games.
Because the structure was close to the field, games cannot be played there until all debris from the fire has been removed. That affects about 350 kids who play on 27 teams, from tee ball to fast pitch softball, according to the league's media coordinator, Sheila Lewis.
Games scheduled to be played on the field Tuesday evening have been moved to other locations. A decision regarding upcoming games will be made after the debris is removed.
Anyone with information about the fire is asked to call (800)272-7766.
