Police: Crowd smashes windows, sets fires in Seattle

SEATTLE (AP) — Authorities say a group of about 150 people broke windows, stole from businesses and started a pair of fires in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood Wednesday night. The Seattle Times reports the group gathered at Cal Anderson Park around 9 p.m. and walked through the neighborhood. Some shattered windows of a business and started a fire inside, which city firefighters extinguished. Police say the group then smashed windows and broke into another business. Authorities say they took merchandise from a vintage store, put it in the street and lit it on fire. Two banks were also damaged. Police did not arrest anyone.
