Water park fire accidental




By The Associated Press

        POWELL, Ohio - A fire that destroyed the bumper car ride and an adjacent retail shop at a water park was an accident, the state fire marshal's office said.

        The most likely cause was a lighted cigarette or cigar thrown near hay being stored for upcoming Halloween activities at Wyandot Lake, investigators said Tuesday.

        No one was injured in the fire early Sunday. The park, which is next to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, was closed at the time.
