ERIE, Colo. — Four teenagers have been arrested and accused of setting fire and destroying a playground at an elementary school a couple of weeks ago.

“Bad people” is how second grader Dominic Graeta described the arsonists in an interview with FOX31 Denver after the playground burned.

The playground at his school was a special place to Dominic. It’s destruction made him sad, mad and spurred him into action.

He not only emptied his piggy bank to help pay to repair it, he also got others, including FOX31 Denver News viewers, on board to help.

As of Thursday, the “bad people” faced the justice system, and at last, Dominic says, the world is back to how it should be.
