FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Authorities in Ferguson have responded quickly after a police car was set on fire outside Ferguson city hall.

The car appeared to have been set on fire Tuesday night by a group of people who had broken off from what had been a largely peaceful crowd protesting a grand jury decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Police used a fire extinguisher to douse the flames and many people scattered as additional officers responded to the scene, though many continued to gather near the damaged car.
