A deputy who doused the fire with a patrol car fire extinguisher about 3:35 p.m. discovered a small liquor bottle atop a stack of newspapers, with metal mesh used as a wick.. Several patrol units responded to the scene, deputies said.

The incident comes on the heels of bombs fashioned from plastic pop bottles that were exploded in Lockport and Buffalo on Sunday. Two were planted in a Town of Lockport cul-de-sac and another was thrown from a car on Columbus Avenue in Buffalo.
