Arson was cause of Planned Parenthood fire in Washington
PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) – Fire investigators in Washington state have determined that an early morning blaze at a Planned Parenthood clinic was arson.
Pullman Fire Department investigator Chris Wehrung said Friday afternoon that the cause is arson, but a joint task force is still investigating and he declined to release other details.
The pre-dawn fire heavily damaged a clinic in the college town of Pullman.
Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Tanya Riordan told The Spokesman-Review that the fire may keep the clinic closed for a month or more.
The FBI and other federal agencies are involved because of the history of anti-abortion activists targeting health care providers offering abortion services.
