BLUFFTON - Authorities said burglars struck two stores in Bluffton, throwing fire bombs that caused minor damage.
The incidents happened early Thursday about 15 minutes apart. Both stores were closed and there were no injures.
The first incident occurred about 2 a.m. at a pawn ship. Beaufort County Sheriff’s Capt. Bob Bromage said an object was thrown through a window causing a fire. Metal bars on the window prevented a burglary.
Fifteen minutes later firefighters responded to a furniture store where the door was on fire.
