CLEVELAND — A portable camera unit that’s part of Cleveland’s photo traffic enforcement program is being restored after someone set it on fire.

The unit was in the 8500 block of Hough Avenue when it was targeted about two weeks ago.

The Cleveland Division of Police said some kind of fuel was used to set the fire at the unit’s base.

It sustained cosmetic damage to the exterior and the antenna was ruined.  The camera itself was not damaged.

The city is waiting on a replacement antenna.

A press assistant for Mayor Frank Jackson released a statement that said, “This is an open investigation and anybody with information should contact the Cleveland Division of Fire.”
