Police say two molotov cocktails were thrown through a window of the house. One hit the outside of the home and caught fire. The other went through a window, but didn't go off.

No one living inside the home was injured, and they were even able to put the fire out themselves.

Police say they're now collecting evidence, including a wick from one of the firebombs, which witnesses say smelled like gasoline.
