Police Make An Arrest In Molotov Cocktail Fire

Savannah Chatham Police have arrested a suspect in an apparent arson fire. Officials tell WTOC shortly after one Monday morning, the residents at a home on Causton Bluff Road found a fire blazing on their back porch.

Savannah firefighters quickly arrived on the scene, but when they did, they found something suspicious. Investigators say it appears someone threw a Molotov cocktail on the back porch, setting the door on fire and melting the vinyl siding.
