For those of you who heard about a Molotov cocktail being thrown at a Maspeth store on the news today, here is an update from Captain Wachter, 104th Precinct.
At 12:15 am a male was seen on video breaking the glass on a door of a business that sells birdseed located 73-15 Grand Avenue. The owner was on the premises and was able to quickly extinguish the fire. The FDNY Arson Unit is currently investigating the incident.
Captain Wachter said this has nothing to do with the incident involving the City Scapes gentlemen's club on 58th Street in Woodside and is most likely a result of a dispute.
If you have any information about this incident, please call the Bureau of Fire Investigation at 718-722-3600.
