Earth Liberation Front extremists were responsible for firebombing three houses in Snohomish County, Washington, that caused an estimated $1 million in damages.
The fires were set in the early morning hours of April 20 in Snohomish County, and there were apparently other targets in nearby areas as well as one incendiary device that apparently failed to ignite.
According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer,
At a separate home-construction site near Maltby, workers arrived yesterday morning to find soft drink and Gatorade bottles filled with liquid and a threatening note written on a piece of cardboard.
The Associated Press quoted the Sierra Club’s Bill Arthur as denouncing these acts of extremism saying that,
What’s happened in Snohomish County is not an ecological statement but a criminal act.
