Video shows suspect throw molotov cocktail at vehicle in Temple

The Temple Fire Marshal's office is hoping you can help them find a suspect who set a car on fire.

The Temple Fire Marshal's Office announced Wednesday it was investigating a vehicle fire involving what appears to have been a molotov cocktail.

Home security footage released by fire officials shows a mid 1990s extended cab Chevrolet/GMC pickup truck with custom wheels, wide tires and a toolbox in the bed, pull up in front of a residence in the 8100 block of Hawthorn Drive around 3 a.m. on July 23. Someone crouched in the truck bed then throws an object at a parked vehicle, causing a fire.

The Fire Marshal's Office is now trying to identify the owner of the truck.

If you have any information about the fire, please call the Temple Fire Marshal's Tip Line at 254-298-5955. Authorities are offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone setting a fire inside the Temple city limits.
