Fox News Vows to Rebuild After 'All-American Christmas Tree' Destroyed by Fire

Police said one person was arrested early on December 8 after a Christmas tree was set on fire in front of the Fox News building on Sixth Avenue in New York City.

Footage taken by Instagram user @mrslimacano shows police at the scene while the tree burns. The NYPD said investigators couldn’t confirm whether an incendiary device was used to start the fire.

Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott told employees on Wednesday that the tree would be rebuilt “as a message that there can be peace, light, and joy even during a dark moment.” Credit: @mrslimacano via Storyful
