On October 12, 2013, Saturday night, a person used a power saw to cut off the lock on the cabin of the Overlook Mountain Fire Tower. Once the existing lock was cut off, they replaced it with their own lock. Witnesses stated that they could see sparks coming from the bottom of the cabin. The police are following up leads to seek an arrest of the person who did this.
The illegal lock was replaced on Sunday morning. Cameras have been placed up there to watch the cabin if the person responsible returns.
