Police investigating 2 arsons in South Seattle

Seattle police detectives are looking for whoever is responsible for two arsons at South Seattle businesses Wednesday night.

The first started just after 8 p.m. when someone set a pile of wood on fire outside a glass shop at Rainier Avenue South and South 22nd Street, causing at least $30,000 in damage, according to the Seattle Police Department.

While firefighters put out that blaze, another fire was set in a Burger King dumpster two blocks away at Rainier Avenue South and South Hill Street.

Police said that by the time firefighters arrived there, the restaurant manager had already put out the fire, which kept it from seriously damaging the building.

Police ask anyone who thinks they saw something suspicious in the area last night to call 911.
