Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Rochester police are investigating an arson case - a burned US flag.

The flag was attached to the front of a couple’s home in the 1200 block of 2nd St NW, a few blocks north of St Marys Hospital.

The woman living at the home happened to look out a window and saw the flag in flames around 10:00 PM Tuesday. The couple used a garden hose to put out the fire.

They told police they talked to their neighbors but no one saw anything suspicious.

A longtime Rochester bike shop is going out of business.
