A person, who apparently got tossed out of Players Downtown last night, went back to the bar and tossed a Molotov cocktail at the building.

Frank Williams, who was just getting back from the Owls game at Meadville, said people told him flames had been leaping 20 feet out of the building after the fire bomb was thrown at about 11:30 p.m., He said could still see smoke at 1:30 a.m.

State Police fire marshal Greg Agosti says the improvised incendiary device was thrown at the front door, and about 50 people had to be evacuated from the building. No one was hurt.

Damage is estimated at $10,000. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Bradford City Police.
