SPD looking for suspect after string of Broadway arson fires

The man was caught on Corvus and Co. security video

Seattle Police confirm that they are looking for a suspect who entered Corvus and Co. and lit fire to one of the Broadway bar’s bathrooms early Wednesday morning.

The bar’s owner posted security video and a photo of the man he says “carried a large propane torch” into the venue in the 600 block of Broadway E around 12:30 AM Wednesday and set fire to a restroom. “This guy was serious. Let’s find this guy before someone gets hurt,” the owner writes.

SPD says they are investigating the attempted arson. Seattle Fire was called to the scene around 12:36 AM Wednesday.

The incident follows a set of suspicious fires discovered within minutes of each other last Friday morning in a dumpster near the Teriyaki and Wok and Ladybug Espresso parking lot and another nearby in the 200 block of Broadway E that singed a Seattle Weekly newspaper box.

There were no injuries reported in the incidents. If you have information that could help SPD, call 911.
