Several fires were set just blocks from the White House on Sunday as protests over the death of George Floyd continued to rage in the nation’s capital.

Protesters piled up road signs and plastic barriers and lit a blaze in the middle of H Street, shortly before the start of the 11 p.m. curfew imposed by Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser.

Some of the demonstrators pulled an American flag from a nearby building and threw it into the flames, The Associated Press reported.

Another blaze was consuming a public cinder block building with bathrooms and a maintenance office at the edge of the park.
