SANTA YNEZ VALLEY, CALIF. - After a pride flag was stolen from a church in Santa Ynez Valley last week, a video of another pride flag lit on fire has surfaced on social media. It is unclear if it was the same stolen flag, but community members fear that it is the same perpetrator.

Locals say they are disheartened after seeing the video.
