Velbert (dpa / lnw) - Two girls are said to have set fire to a former football stadium in Velbert and thus set fire to the grass on the former stadium. Almost the entire grass area was destroyed, as the police announced on Tuesday.
According to the police, the fire brigade was able to extinguish the fire quickly, but could no longer prevent almost the entire area from being damaged. The property damage was initially unclear. The police initiated criminal proceedings. The "Zur Sonnenblume" stadium was the home of today's Oberliga club SSVg Velbert until 2020.
