    Two vehicles owned by two Monroe County Sheriff's deputies in New York were torched at their home early Sunday morning, triggering an arson investigation.

    The fire from the first vehicle spread to a second vehicle and caused damage to the home, 13 WHAM reported Sunday. No one was injured.

    "This type of behavior is extremely concerning to me," said Monroe County Sheriff Todd Baxter, according to a press release from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

    "Deputies and their families will always be my priority," the statement continued. "Whatever the reason for this fire, know that our investigators are working diligently through the weekend to determine a cause."

    "We are conducting a full court press to find who is responsible," added Baxter. "Make no mistake, we will find and ensure those responsible are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."

    At 3:31 a.m. on Sunday, the sheriff's office and Brockport firefighters responded to a report over the incident, the press release explained. "Upon arrival, the fire had spread to a second vehicle in the same driveway. The fire also causes damage to the house, fortunately no one was injured," the release said.

    The vehicles that were set on fire belonged to two Monroe County Sheriff's deputies, the release added. "MCSO's Arson Task Force, Criminal Investigation Section (CIS), and Major Felony Unit (MFU) are investigating."

    Videotape surveillance has been collected and "is currently under review by investigators," the office announced.

    "At this time, we do not know the motive behind the fires, however, MCSO will determine it and share its findings with the public," the statement noted.

    The office later clarified that the incident occurred in the town of Clarkson, not Sweden, as originally stated on the press release.

    The apparent crime was committed on the same day as a large anti-police protest in Monroe County that took over a major highway.

    As seen in the footage below, protesters shouted, "We shut sh** down."

    The protesters are demanding, in part, that all "non-violent" offenders be released from prison.
