Antifa Sets Portland Restaurant On Fire After Owner Criticizes Vandalism

Officials in Portland are looking for a man seen on video lighting a local restaurant on fire after the owner was heard criticizing Antifa violence.

On November 23, a man seen on surveillance video tried set Reo’s Ribs on fire, Breitbart News reported. Portland firefighters arrived in time to put the fire out.

Still, the fire scorched the outside and part of the inside of the establishment.

Later, KOIN CBS6 posted the snippet of the surveillance video which shows the suspect setting a fire.

Breitbart noted that it isn’t known if the TV station blurred the face of the suspect or if the police did it before releasing the video.

It is also unknown if officials know the identify of the suspect.

“I feel really relieved that we know who did it and we know that we might be stopping other fires,” Reo’s Ribs co-owner Myra Girod told KOIN News.

This is the second fire at Reo’s Ribs in the past three years.

“Portland Fire Department officials ruled a 2017 fire that previously destroyed the restaurant to be an accident. Reo remains suspicious of the incident. He rebuilt the restaurant only to have it burned a second time,” Breitbart reported.
