Posted: Updated:

TOPPENISH, Wash. -- Toppenish Police are looking for suspects they say set a home on fire in Toppenish Friday night.

Officers were called to the 700 block of E. 1st Avenue just before 9:30pm Friday for an arson complaint. The caller stated that someone had just thrown several Molotov Cocktails at his home and his house was on fire.

When officers arrived, there were several areas in the yard that were burning and the resident was putting out the fires with a hose.

At the scene, officers found three unbroken bottles which had been used. The bottles were kept for evidence.

During the investigation, officers determined that the incident was likely started by an escalation from a fight which occurred on Thursday several teenage girls.

Officers are continuing to investigate the incident and all of those connected to the altercation.

At the time of the fire, six people were inside of the residence.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Toppenish Police Department (5009) 865-4355.
