Molotov Cocktail: Fire Deliberately Set at Office of Waypoint Homes After Facing Landlord Complaints

Gwinnett County fire investigators are asking the public for information about the identity of a person who started a fire at a local office for a nationwide house renting company that was recently the subject of an ABC News investigation.

Fire department officials released a surveillance video which shows a person throw an object through a window at Waypoint Homes’ office on the 4051 block of Stone Mountain Highway in unincorporated Lilburn early Monday morning. Moments after the person threw a rock through the window, he or she is seen lighting a Molotov cocktail and throwing it through the broken window.

The incident happened just before 7 a.m., and Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Services Capt. Tommy Rutledge said an employee was working in the office area when the incident happened. The employee told investigators that they heard the glass break in a conference room.

“The employee hesitated at first and immediately thought that someone was attempting to break into the business,” Rutledge said. “After a few seconds, the employee went to the front and encountered smoke and flames coming from the conference room. The employee sprang into action and quickly doused the fire before calling 9-1-1.

Rest here…
