MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Investigators are searching for at least one person who threw Molotov cocktails at a business on Park Avenue.

Fire investigators saw heavy smoke when they arrived on the scene on Park Avenue near Brower Street just after 1 a.m. Once the fire was out, they determined that at least one person tried to set the building on fire in multiple places by using Molotov cocktails.

Fortunately, no one was inside the building, which appears to be a realty office, when the fire started. No one was injured.

Surveillance cameras surrounding the building may help police identify the responsible person or people.

Investigators have no suspect description at this time and no one in custody.

WMC Action News 5 is working to learn to whom the building belonged and whether security footage captured the suspected arsonist or arsonists.
