MISSIONARY RIDGE, TN (WRCB) -- Due to safety concerns, the DeLong Reservation in Missionary Ridge has been closed until further notice, according to park officials.

Representatives with the National Park Service say two civil war-era cannons on display inside the park were vandalized March 23rd.

The vandalism caused the cannons to be instable, making them unsafe for the park visitors.

Officials say the park is closed until further notice, pending a criminal investigation.

Anyone with information regarding the activity and or persons responsible for the vandalism is asked to contact the Chief Ranger Todd Roeder (423) 752-5213 x119.
