ROCKLAND — City public safety crews responded Saturday afternoon to Molotov cocktails that were left on train tracks.

Officials received a call at about 6:30 p.m. about a bottle filled with gas and stuffed with a cloth that was burning on the tracks near the Maine Behavioral Health building.

Rockland police and firefighters responded. The first bottle had fallen on its side and burned out without exploding or the fire spreading. The second was found farther west on the tracks; it was upright but did not appear to be burning.

The Maine State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating.
