    Baltimore police and fire officials are urging people to be on the lookout for suspicious activity after a string of firebombings across the city in recent weeks.

    Officials announced Thursday that there have been nine arson incidents involving Molotov cocktails in the city since Sept. 13, but there have been no serious injuries or property damage.

    Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in most cases the firebombs were thrown through first-floor front windows of homes between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. He said that since the firebombings have happened all over the city and there doesn't seem to be anything linking the victims or structures that were targeted, investigators don't believe one person is responsible.

    Authorities ask anyone who sees someone carrying gasoline, particularly in glass bottles, to contact police.
