    Officials are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for firebombing a New Jersey police captain's home.

    Firefighters responded to the fire at Edison police captain Mark Anderko's two-story home on Arlene Drive in Monroe Township early Monday. No one was injured.

    Authorities have not said what was used to start the fire.

    State Policemen's Benevolent Association President Anthony Wieners says the attack on the home and the officer's family is "unspeakable."

    Anyone with information should contact the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office 732-745-3300 or Middlesex County Crime Stoppers at 800-939-9600.
