The police and fire departments of Brooklyn Center are investigating a garage fire that started early Thursday morning as potentially politically motivated.
A three-car garage and three vehicles inside were destroyed, and firefighters saved “three dogs and five puppies” from inside the home itself, which suffered “minor damage,” according to a release from the Brooklyn Center Police Department.
The people who lived there said they had a “fairly large ‘Trump 2020’ sign,” which was destroyed, while messages were spray-painted onto the garage that burned: “BLM,” short for Black Lives Matter, “Biden 2020,” and the anarchist “A” logo.
The TC Crime Watch account tweeted a screenshot of a Facebook post apparently from the occupants, who photographed the blaze, and offered a short narrative of their experience.
