Limo, other vehicles set on fire during inauguration protests

- A limousine was set on fire in downtown Washington D.C. as protests continued throughout the afternoon during the inaugural events for Donald Trump.

Just before 4:30 p.m., the limousine was engulfed in flames and large clouds of smoke rose from the burning vehicle on 13th and K Streets in Northwest D.C., just blocks away from the route of the inaugural parade. The vehicle was also spray-painted on the side with the phrase “We The People.”

FOX 5 Photojournalist Van Applegate also reports a Fox News crew and an unmarked SUV were also set on fire on 13th Street.

Protests began to erupt on Friday after Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. Pepper spray, flash bang grenades and other control devices were used against protesters to the control the demonstrations.

D.C. police said Friday afternoon that 95 people have been arrested so far and two uniformed officers have been injured.
