Rockford Fire Department investigating bombing of pro-life bus


A bus owned by a Rockford pro-life organization was set on fire over the weekend.

The bus, owned by Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Academy, was damaged early on Saturday morning. Windows were broken and the bus was set on fire. The Rockford Fire Department is investigating the incident as arson, but there are no witnesses and no suspect at this time.

Some are speculating that the fire was in response to the closing of a Rockford abortion clinic, however, the Rockford Fire Department says there is no indication that anyone is being targeted.
