Westchester County Deputy Parks Commissioner Peter Tartaglia tells the Journal News that the fire Sunday was caused by an electrical spark from a light at the base of the carousel’s domed roof.

Some of the wooden horses sustained water damage, but were not burned.

Westchester County already had planned to renovate the 102-year-old carousel.
