FBI: Fur factory fire was domestic terrorism

[CBS News]

BOISE, Idaho - The FBI has classified a fire at a western Idaho fur and fireworks retailer as a potential domestic terrorism case, federal authorities said.

Animal rights activists claimed to have started the Sept. 24 blaze at the Caldwell business. Federal agents "are taking custody of the evidence," Mark Leiser with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told the Idaho Statesman.

On the day of the fire, the North American Animal Liberation Press Office in Los Angeles announced that it received a message from animal rights activists claiming responsibility for setting the blaze at the Rocky Mountain Fireworks & Fur Co. No one was injured in the fire.
