A Yolo County sheriff’s deputy removes crime-scene tape from outside the Yolo County Courthouse in Woodland, where an arson attempt was discovered Wednesday morning during a routine perimeter check. The historic building was closed and court operations disrupted until about 10 a.m. while sheriff’s officials investigated the scene, where someone had burned crumpled-up paper inside wooden pallets at four entrances to the courthouse.

The incident resulted in no significant damage, other than leaving a sooty smell inside the building for much of the day.
