Police in Salt Lake City are searching for 3 men suspected of throwing flaming projectiles onto the outdoor deck of a gay bar on Thursday.

Several of the flaming devices were thrown over JAM's wooden fence and into a crowd of about 30 to 40 people, ABC News 4 reported.

“So we had at least 30 to 40 people here,” Fernando Noriega, a witness, told the news network. “All the sudden we saw something bright. I thought they were fireworks on the floor.”

Noriega called the devices flares but firefighters were unable to identify them.

“Out of a group of 30 people, all of those flares to be be hitting at the same time we don't know how, everyone was very lucky,” he told ABC News 4, referring to the fact that nobody was injured.

Witnesses described the suspects, who quickly took off in a dark red Pontiac Grand Am, as white males in their late teens to early twenties.
