A fire destroyed a covered cook shelter, adjacent to the covered picnic structure, in Lower City Park early this morning, according to McMinnville police.

Officer Justin James notified the Yamhill Communications Agency dispatch center about 12:35 a.m. that the structure was ablaze, according to Capt. Matt Scales. McMinnville firefighters responded and quickly extinguished the fire.

Due to the suspicious nature of the fire, the Yamhill County Fire Investigation Team will try to determine a cause.

Anyone with information about the incident should contact James at 503-434-7307.
