WASHINGTON - 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.”
