      Danville Man Accused of Arson Found Not Guilty

      Danville, VA - A man accused of setting fire to a playground in Danville was found not guilty on Monday.

      A judge acquitted Tyrus Beck on arson and felonious intentional damage of the playground at GHL Johnson Elementary School last September.

      The fire caused about $120,000 worth of damage and the school has since rebuilt the playground.

      The judge apparently found there wasn't enough evidence against Beck to convict him of setting the fire.
