Molotov cocktail fire

October 21, 2002

Albany -- Another Albany house is torched by a molotov cocktail, the second in a week. Two gasoline-filled wine bottles were tossed into a home on Hawthorne Drive Sunday morning. They started a fire that caused 20-thousand dollars in damage.

 Assistant Chief James Carswell said "We confirmed it was an arson. We found two separate incindeary devices. One busted, and actually ignited the first. The other one did not bust."

Last Wednesday night a molotov cocktail was thrown through the window of a home on Mulberry Avenue. Investigators don't know if they are connected.
