Baltimore police say Molotov cocktails are to blame for fires that injured more than a half-dozen people.
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says Molotov cocktails were found in a garden-style apartment building and a nearby northeast Baltimore residence on Wednesday morning.
He says fires at the two buildings injured about seven or eight people, though none of the injuries is believed to be serious.
He says there’s no evidence that it was a hate crime, but that detectives are pursuing other theories.
He says police will be canvassing the area Wednesday afternoon. Detectives don’t yet have any suspects and aren’t sure of a motive.
Most of the 12 units in the apartment building were severely damaged by the fire.
