Suspicious fire at Renton Ukrainian center

Renton police and fire officials are investigating a suspicious fire early today at the Ukrainian Community Center and church.

No one was injured in the 2 a.m. blaze in the 200 block of Taylor Avenue Northwest , for which damages may exceed $750,000 from flames, smoke and water.

The fire started near a dumpster outside the church, spread up the outside wall and into an attic.

Renton Deputy Fire Chief Greg Hartman said it doesn’t appear the center was targeted because of its activities. Other arson fires have occurred in that part of town within the last few months.

KING5 has a photo of the damage.
