Police investigating attempted arson in West Central
A West Central neighborhood home was the target of an attempted arson on Monday morning.
Spokane Police spokeswoman Jennifer DeRuwe says a flaming rag was thrown through the window of a home in the 1800 block of west Gardner around 6:20 a.m.
Fire crews responded, but identified the fire as arson and handed the investigation over to police and federal investigators who are investigating the fire as a possible hate crime.
Nobody was injured at the home during the attempt.
