Cy-Fair Youth Baseball Hit with $25,000 Arson

Just a week before the fall season was set to begin, the Cy-Fair Sports Association has been hit with a nasty surprise: an arson that has caused about $25,000 in damage and decimated the league's equipment and facilities.

A suspect has been arrested in connection with this morning's fire to the equipment garage at 5500 Queenston Boulevard, but that isn't making good what's been lost.

"The building as well as all of the complex's field maintenance equipment was destroyed," officials say. "The loss is estimated to be around $25,000 and there was no insurance on the building...CFSA is soliciting donations of money, time or resources to help remove the damaged building, rebuild it and replace the lost equipment for the complex."

The CFSA describes itself as "a 100 percent volunteer driven, nonprofit association that promotes youth athletics in Northwest Houston."

It adds:

Donations can be accepted @ 281-970-8080 or sent care of CFSA Baseball at: PO Box 841751 Houston, Texas, 77284-1751. For further information, please email [email protected]
