In the video, something is shown to be on fire at the end of the stalls in the bathroom. Jessica Garza, spokesperson for the city of Elsa and economic development director, said it was toilet paper being burned. 

The video, which was posted on the city’s Facebook page Tuesday, was sent to Garza by the park director.

“This happened probably the last two or three days,” she said.
