    Fire damage liability
    If a juvenile starts a fire on city owned property, a playground area, and the city owned parcel and city owned adjacent parcel have not been properly maintained for fire control, is the city responsible for damages caused to properties adjacent to their property?

    While a court may judge that the city has partial liablity, normally the parents of the juvenile will hold the majority of the responsibility.
