PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY (WRGT) - Authorities are searching for two men who were caught on surveillance video lighting fireworks on a Maryland home's porch.

The video from Prince George's County Fire and EMS shows the two men who are shirtless approach the house. One of them stays by the front gate while the other lights the fireworks on the porch, causing the explosion. The homeowners say they don't know why they were targeted or who the men are.

Investigators say the suspects used M80 fireworks in the vandalism. The bomb squad responded to the home and firefighters say the only damage caused was to the front of the house. The fireworks damaged the sliding door, glad door and cracked a wall inside the home. A resident said if it hadn't been noticed right away, the fire could have destroyed the entire house.
