COTTONWOOD -- A Molotov-cocktail type fire bomb was thrown through the front window at a City of Cottonwood office early Monday morning.

Cottonwood Fire Marshal Rick Contreras said two fire bombs were thrown, breaking the front window at the Finance and Human Resources building at 816 N. Main St. A rock was also used to break out a rear window in the same building. Contreras said the resulting fire caused damage around the broken window and heavy smoke damage throughout the building.

The Finance and Human Resources Department is being moved to the Cottonwood Public Safety Facility at 616 Sixth St., where the Police and Fire Departments are located.

Cottonwood Police Commander Gary Eisenga said the arsonists targeted two other buildings, unsuccessfully, before throwing the bombs at the city building. Police are also investigating incidents at Sunwest Bank, 704 S. Main St., Cottonwood, and also at the Spirit Gas Station at 10th and Main Street.

Cottonwood fire was dispatched to a report of smoke in the area of the Finance and Human Resources Building about 6:20 Monday morning. When crews arrived, they found flames inside the building and heavy smoke throughout.

It's the second time a Molotov cocktail type device was used to torch property in Cottonwood. Richard Thomas Butts is charged with fire-bombing a medical helicopter at Verde Valley Medical Center last year.
