Lawrence police are investigating a burning item found early Friday morning in the 1800 block of Miller Drive.
Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical collected and quickly extinguished the incendiary device, said Lawrence Police Sgt. Susan Hadl.
"It could have been an attempt at a molotov cocktail," Hadl said. "It didn't break, it was just burning in the middle of the street."
Authorities responded about 1:20 a.m. after a resident reported the flaming object.
As of Friday morning, police had not identified any suspects and were still gathering information, Hadl said.
