MIAMI Authorities are looking for an arsonist who burglarized and set fire to two unmarked police cars and a sport utility vehicle in a Miami neighborhood.

Miami-Dade police say all three vehicles were set on fire Sunday night after at least one of them was broken into. The police vehicles belonged to a married couple. The husband is a Miami-Dade officer and the wife is a Doral officer.

Authorities say they're not sure whether the couple was specifically targeted for being in law enforcement.

Police are urging anyone with information about the incident to call Miami-Dade CrimeStoppers.
