The Madison headquarters of Wisconsin Family Action, an anti-abortion group, was reportedly set on fire late Saturday night or early Sunday morning after vandals threw what is believed to be at least one Molotov cocktail at the building.

Two staffers returned to the building for work mid-Sunday morning when they found the windows on one side of the office were shattered while burned books were scattered across the office, according to a report from Wisconsin State Journal.

There was an apparent smell of smoke hours after the fire, which reportedly occurred in the building. The report noted that the building was also riddled with graffiti portraying anti-police slogans and the phrase: “If abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either.”

The Madison Police Department incident report stated that “Flames were seen coming from the facility shortly after 6 a.m.” The police report also noted that no one was injured. The group’s president also confirmed that no one was injured, according to the publication.
