The community of Buxton has been left disheartened after vandals damaged a memorial playground, built to remember fallen firefighters Andrew O'Dwyer and Geoffrey Keaton who lost their lives in the Green Wattle Creek fire.

Late last week a local resident had to extinguish a couple of pieces of playground equipment which had been set alight.

Narellan Police have been notified about the incident

Kim Hill from the Buxton Rural Fire Service said she can't understand why people would do such a thing.

'' It's absolutely appalling, I can't even begin to explain how upset and angry the whole community is about this '' Ms. Hill said.
