LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) - Police in Lawrence are seeking a suspect who they say set fire to the back of a crowded nightclub over the weekend.

The Eagle-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2gaXcQ5 ) police say the person drove up to the rear of the Attika nightclub on Sunday night and set the fire. More than 100 people were in the building at the time.

Lt. James Raso says a video shows a person stop a vehicle near the club before pouring some type of flammable liquid and starting the fire that charred the back wall.

Club employees put out the fire by the time police arrived. No injuries were reported.

The suspect drove away. Raso confirmed the vehicle, a four-door sedan, had a New Jersey license plate.
