Video tweeted from Portland, Oregon, shows protesters burning an American flag in the streets near the U.S. courthouse. The incident took place late Thursday night as protesters built a fire in the middle of the street.

Protesters in Portland set a wooden pallet on fire in the street near the U.S. federal courthouse late Friday night, Breitbart News reported. Around midnight, police ordered people to clear the streets and stop building the fire. While building the fire, a protester walks up and tosses an American flag into the flames.

Portland police officers in riot gear ordered the crowd to disperse and stop stoking the flames.

Officers eventually cleared the street. They provided cover for the Portland Fire Department to move in and douse the flames.
