Posted: Updated:

SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- The Miami-Dade Police Department is investigating an arson attack that left a car up in flames.

The attack took place at the intersection of Southwest 15th Street and 14th Terrace.

According to the police report, the victim, Yannis Tapanes was at her sister's house when she heard a car alarm go off at around 1:10 a.m. She told police that she saw a car on fire outside the home's window.

Family members were able to extinguish the fire, but the car was a total lost. Surveillance video from a camera mounted on the side of the house shows two subjects were involved in the attack.

Miami-Dade police said the two suspects then entered a getaway vehicle and fled in an unknown direction. "At this time, we do not know. We're seeking the help of the community to help us identify these two males that are seen in the surveillance video," said Miami-Dade Police Detective Robin Pinkard.

No one was injured, and the house was not damaged.

If you have any information on this arson attack, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
