SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. (AP) - Deputies are investigating a possible hate crime at a Spokane Valley coffee stand where a fire was set and a spray-painted message said, “Go back to China.”

The owners of the Coffee Break stand came to work Tuesday morning and smelled gasoline and saw the red paint in the parking lot. The fire did not spread into the building.

The stand is owned by Korean sisters. One, Diana Na, told KXLY (http://bit.ly/1msEkVK ) someone didn’t get the message of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The sisters opened the stand last summer. They say they have a base of loyal, happy customers who were disgusted when they found out about the attempted arson.
