Witnesses say someone threw lit bottles filled with unknown liquid at the Iglesia ni Cristo Locale of Seattle. Fire officials are investigating it as arson.
Authorities are investigating an arson attempt at a church in Seattle’s Rainier Valley after several Molotov cocktails were thrown at the church as dozens of people attended a service Thursday night.
Several witnesses called in a fire outside Iglesia ni Cristo Locale of Seattle, a Church of Christ, shortly after 8 p.m. The church is located at 7100 42nd Ave. S.
Witnesses told fire investigators that a person threw lit bottles filled with unknown liquid at the church building. The Molotov cocktails caused minor damage to the exterior of the church, but did not ignite a fire inside, where 50 people were gathered.
There are no injuries to report and no suspects in custody at this time.
