Old Saybrook Police Chief Michael Spera says that a man walked into the Hunters Ambulance Headquarters in Old Saybrook Saturday and threw a Molotov cocktail down on the ground, igniting a fire.
He then proceeded to drive around the state and target local ambulances in Meriden and Roxbury with Molotov cocktails as well.
State Police are assisting Roxbury fire authorities with their investigation.
They are also looking into another intentionally set fire in Roxbury as well.
