Rockford, Ill. (WIFR) -- Another Rockford playground went up in flames Monday night.

Shortly after 7 p.m. Fire crews found the McIntosh Elementary School playground engulfed in flames.

They were able to put out the blaze within minutes.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.

This comes about three weeks after West View Elementary School's playground caught fire.

Rockford Mayor Tom McNamara is guest bartending Tuesday night at Stockyard Rock Burger Bar to raise money to fix West View's playground.

No one has been arrested in connection to either fires.
