PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Police are investigating after two men were seen on surveillance video throwing a Molotov cocktail into a car in Rhode Island.

WPRI-TV reports police were called to the scene around 6 a.m. Saturday for a car fire that had spread to a home in Providence. No injuries were reported.

Police say a neighbor had footage that captured the men setting a Jeep on fire before fleeing in another car.

An arson investigator says there is a $5,000 reward offered for anyone that has information that leads to a conviction.
