Police are investigating who tossed a mini Molotov cocktail -- a beer bottle filled with burning gasoline -- from a car window on a Greenfield Hill street last week.

An Old Academy Road resident called 911 around 9:42 p.m. Dec. 5 to report something was burning near the street. The caller told police he saw occupants of a car throw something out of the window, and flames erupted on the ground after they drove away.

The fire had extinguished itself by the time firefighters arrived at the scene. The bottle was thrown toward a wooded area in the 200 block of Old Academy Road.
