Arson Fire

On 10/13/09, at 2:00 a.m., an officer was flagged down by a taxi driver, who  reported that he observed a man and a woman set a light pole on fire at 10 Ave / E. Pike St.   Seattle Fire Department responded to the scene. 

The suspects lit paper posters, which were attached to the light pole on fire causing a smoldering effect that burned out on its own.  Officers  conducted an area check for additional fires and found three more poles smoldering on 10th Ave between E. Pike and E. Pine streets. 

The only damage of  note was to the posters attached to the poles.  The suspects are described as a middle age white male and white female, wearing black.
