Buildings continued to burn in Ferguson, Missouri, early on Tuesday morning, the day after a grand jury declined to indict a white police officer in the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown.
The widespread destruction, brought on by rioting Monday night, appeared to be much worse than last summer's protests, with at least a dozen businesses badly damaged or destroyed.
A storage facility, two auto parts stores, a beauty supply store and a pizza shop were among the local businesses torched.
Firefighters were seen working early on Tuesday morning to extinguish several large store fires.
Authorities reported hearing hundreds of gunshots, which for a time prevented fire crews from fighting the flames.
The protests came following the announcement on Monday evening that Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted in the shooting of Brown on August 9.
Moments after the announcement by St. Louis County's top prosecutor, crowds began pouring into Ferguson streets to protest the decision.
Police lobbed tear gas from inside armoured vehicles to try and disperse the crowds.
