VALLEJO — Federal officials are expected to begin an investigation into an early morning fire at the law office of Vallejo Mayor Osby Davis, which is now called an act of “domestic terrorism.”
ABC7 News reported Saturday night that Vallejo fire investigators are treating the incident as an act of domestic terrorism and have called in the FBI and Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to assist.
Vallejo Fire Chief Paige Meyer said the fire, reported around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, damaged a waiting room and office area before firefighters put the fire out around 1:45 a.m.
Meyer told the Vallejo Times Herald newspaper that the fire was “very suspicious.”
Fire inspectors were on the scene Saturday investigating, while authorities are asking anyone who may have been in the area at the time and seen anything suspicious to contact police or fire officials.
The offices where the fire broke out are across the street from the Solano County Superior Courthouse.
“I’m not going to express my feelings,” Davis told ABC7 News. “I’m just telling you they’re going through the investigation. They’re trying to piece together the pieces and we’ll deal with what we have to deal with.”
