LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles fire officials say a Korean church in the North Hills area appears to have been targeted by vandals who lit a small fire in the kitchen and left racist graffiti nearby.
Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott says the fire occurred when combustible materials were stuffed into a toaster at about 3:15 p.m. Monday.
The Fire Department arson section is investigating.
