An unknown suspect fled after setting a pile of clothes and other items aflame at People’s Park, according to a UC Berkeley WarnMe email released Sunday evening.

The fire — which remained small, spanning 1 foot by 1 foot — was ignited near a group of occupied tents but was quickly extinguished by park patrons, according to UCPD spokesperson Stg. Thomas Wing. He added that the fire did not cause any injuries or property damage.

According to the email, the subject was most recently seen walking toward Haste Street.
