Police will allege they discovered the remains of a Molotov cocktail at the scene of a suspicious fire in Lithgow earlier this year, which destroyed a vehicle.
Shortly after 3am on Tuesday, March 30, emergency services responded to reports of a ute on fire outside a home on Coalbrook Street, Lithgow.
Fire and Rescue NSW attended and extinguished the fire, after which officers attached to Chifley Police District commenced an investigation and will allege they found the Molotov cocktails remains at the scene.
Following inquiries, police wish to speak with two males who were seen to enter the backyard of the home before the fire began around 3.15am.
The CCTV depicts the males running towards the laneway after the fire took place.
As inquiries continue, police would like to speak with the occupants of a white sedan travelling west on Coalbrook Street from the Sandford Avenue intersection shortly before the incident occurred.
The vehicle is depicted in CCTV footage to turn right onto Wear Street, before turning left into an unnamed laneway behind the home.
Police are yet to establish a motive for the attack, and are re-appealing to the public for any information.
