OLYMPIA, Wash. – Someone tried to set an Olympia Police Department station on fire early Wednesday morning.
When an officer returned to the West Side Station at 221 Perry St. NW shortly after 3:15 a.m. he discovered smoke inside the station.
A search showed it appeared someone put a flammable substance on the outside of the rear door and set it on fire, said Sergeant Dan Wojtech. The fire was out by the time the officer found it, but it was apparent that it was fairly recent.
The attempted arson is being investigated by the Olympia Fire Department and police detectives. They have no suspects in custody.
