DENVER - A holdout group of anti-Wall Street protesters set fire to their tent camp in downtown Denver during an overnight raid by police that dismantled the site, authorities said Tuesday.

Nine protesters were arrested during the confrontation, including one person on suspicion of felony arson, said Denver police spokesman Lieutenant Matthew Murray.

When police arrived late Monday night, they were confronted by about 50 protesters, and one person in the group set the "shanty town" of tents on fire, Murray said.

Once officers moved protesters back, firefighters extinguished the blaze and public works crews dismantled the camp, he said. No one was injured.
