The Loaves & Fishes Little Free Library was the victim of a fire Saturday morning.

Allen Killian-Moore, a live-in volunteer at the Dorothy Day house on the 1700 block of Jefferson Street, said it happened at about 8:30 a.m. He said he was having breakfast when a guest saw police officers running toward the house with fire extinguishers.

Police officers happened to drive by and see the blaze, and they put it out. Many of the books survived.

Killian-Moore said they plan to restock the library and keep it going.

Police said they are not actively looking for a particular suspect, but anyone with information is asked to call 911.
