An unsolved arson in Olympia six years ago might help solve another arson that happened Monday morning.

The fires are a case of déjà-vu for neighbors who remember when an abortion clinic was firebombed right next to this lot in 2005.

And that's the only reason the surveillance cameras were up to capture the fire Monday morning. Around 4 a.m., someone can be seen running away from the trailer.

That person tried to set another one on fire in the back lot of Olympia's Environmental Services Network.
 
No one was hurt but it's still unnerving for the neighbors.

"That's pretty freaky for someone to do that kind of damage to property. I know how the neighbors feel there," said Nancy Armstrong.

That's because she owns Eastside Health Care, the business hit by an arsonist seven years ago. They rebuilt, but no longer perform abortions here because after the fire their insurance premiums would have gone way up.

Police never arrested anyone for the abortion clinic fire and they are still looking for the person who set the fires Monday
