Police in Vermont are searching for a suspect accused of igniting a fire outside Senator Bernie Sanders’ office on Friday. The incident caused minor damage, with no reported injuries.

According to authorities, an unidentified male sprayed a potential accelerant on the office door, setting it ablaze before fleeing the scene. The suspect remains at large, and investigators have not determined a motive for the act.

Burlington police stated that the fire affected the door and vestibule, posing a risk to staff members in the office. The sprinkler system activated and helped contain the fire, preventing further damage.

Earlier that day, the Burlington Fire Department responded to a call reporting a fire near the vestibule, elevator, and entrance door of Sanders’ third-floor office. While the office door sustained moderate fire damage, extensive water damage affected much of the third floor, evacuating Sanders’ office and adjacent spaces.
