Gay Pride float in Anchorage

Anchorage authorities say they’re investigating the cause of a fire that destroyed a gay Pride float being built for a July 4 parade.

KTUU-TV reported witnesses told investigators that moments before the fire began July 2 they saw someone running from the driveway where the float was being constructed.

Neighbors and the float’s builders say they fear a hate crime.

Investigators say they’re still working. A report that concludes the fire was set would lead to a criminal investigation.
