Columbia City Bank Damaged In Attempted Arson

A Columbia City bank was damaged overnight after someone threw an incendiary device at the business.

At about 9:45 am Thursday, bank employees arrived at work and discovered a broken window and burn marks on the side of the building, located at Rainier Avenue S. and S. Edmunds Street.

It appears a gasoline-filled bottle struck and scorched the side of the bank, but the fire did not spread or cause extensive damage to the business.
