KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -- Police in KCK are investigating after someone tried to firebomb one of the city's fire stations.

It happened overnight at station three, at the corner of 4th and Kansas.

The police chief said a man threw a gas can with a rag stuffed in the nozzle at one of the garage doors.

A firefighter had heard something hit the garage door and then he saw someone running away.

When he checked, he found the gas can mentioned above and saw the rag was no longer on fire.

The police arrested a suspected nearby who was in possession of similar gas cans.

That person could face aggravated attempted arson charges.
