Police in Portland, Maine released this surveillance video of either one or two vandals tossing a roman candle into a parked 2009 Nissan Versa on July 17th. The culprits are still on the loose.

No one was in the Versa at the time, but it suffered damage from getting smacked by the perpetrators' silver Honda Civic as well as burns through the interior. Thankfully, the roman candle hit a five-gallon jug of vinegar in the Versa's back seat, putting the fireworks out before they caused too much damage.

Note to self: Always carry five gallons of vinegar in your car to prevent fires.
