Pride Display Burned at Dark Star Magick, Portland, Ore.

A Pride display at Dark Star Magick in Portland, Ore., was lit on fire earlier this week, FOX12 Oregon reported.

Early Monday morning, someone smashed one of the store's windows, poured some type of accelerant on the Pride display, and lit it on fire. Around 4:30 a.m., Portland Fire & Rescue responded to the fire and put it out. The fire had not spread further than a pile of books in the display. None of the apartments above the bookstore were affected.

"Whoever did this put at risk an entire apartment building full of people," store owner Steve Kinchen told FOX12. "They need to be caught. This is not acceptable. This is not the Portland that we love. This kind of nonsense has to stop. We're just small business people trying to make a living."

The fire remains under investigation.
