Arsonists Burn American Flags In Stapleton Neighborhood

DENVER (CBS4) – Arson investigators are looking into who burned American flags in Denver’s Stapleton neighborhood.

Over the weekend someone burned three flags around Central Park. One was on the flagpole in front of a model home at 33rd and Willow.

The Denver Fire Department believes the fires were set between 8 p.m. last Saturday and 8 a.m. Sunday morning.

“For many Americans that flag is a very sacred symbol and to burn it is a vile and despicable act,” Denver fire spokesman Lt. Phil Champagne said. “I know that people have come forth trying to offer assistance and aid in trying to identify who did it.”

People in the area say someone is also stealing patio furniture off front porches. They suspect children.
