Several photos from surveillance cameras were also posted on Twitter to support the resident’s claims.

At approximately 5:00 a.m., two men walked inside the lobby of the building and set a bundle of fire starter bricks on fire.

A resident of the building who was returning home allegedly asked them to identify themselves, and one of the men admitted to being a protester who had come with the convoy.

One of the men then allegedly wrapped the doors to the building with duct tape to prevent them from opening.

According to the resident of the building, some of his neighbors would have asked the demonstrators, who were still celebrating loudly at 4 a.m., to stop the noise.

It was these demands that would have prompted the two alleged arsonists to take revenge and start the fire.

Fortunately, the fire could be extinguished thanks to the reflexes of a good Samaritan who passed in front of the building.

After forcing he was able to open the doors and put out the flames.

  1. I sincerely hope they’re caught and punished to the full extent of the law. This could have caused numerous deaths. Absolutely appalling, words fail me!

  2. The guy who tweeted it and had access to camera systems probably staged it. The photos show what I see is lefties in bubble jackets.
