Firefighters put out the flames; police are investigating.

It seems that someone on the South Shore isn't a fan of Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

A sign supporting Trump was allegedly set ablaze in Hull Monday night, according to police.

At around 11:45 p.m., police received a report that the large campaign poster displayed near a commercial property on Nantasket Avenue was burning. The sign was posted on wooden legs next to a tree, which was also damaged by the fire.

A Hull police spokeswoman said firefighters extinguished the blaze, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.

A photo was posted to Twitter by a Hull resident Tuesday morning showing the damage.


The incident marks the second time this month that Trump's campaign signs have been vandalized in Massachusetts.

On January 9, police reported that Trump's state campaign headquarters in Littleton was the target of graffiti. A phallic drawing, and the words "PIG" and "NAZI," were scrawled in red and orange spray paint across the wall and windows of the King Street headquarters.
