Mukilteo police released surveillance video this week showing the arson that destroyed a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints building here in October.
The video came from a camera at nearby Kamiak High School. It is a little hard to view without some context. The camera was on its side because of a recent roofing project, Mukilteo detective Lance Smith said.
The timestamp on the video is not exact. It’s off by about 90 seconds, give or take.
At :01 in the clip, you can see the flash of the Molotov cocktail being lit. At about :07, you can see the smoke and flames start.
Within three minutes, the back of the church was fully involved.
Police urge anyone with information about the arson to call 800-55-ARSON (800-552-7766). A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to a conviction.
