Someone tried to burn down the Kardashians' clothing store in West Hollywood on Monday night, Los Angeles County sheriff's official said.

At about 11:20 p.m., a passerby called 911 and reported seeing a man throw a "lit object" through the front door window of the Dash store in the 8400 block of Melrose Avenue, said sheriff's Lt. Edward Ramirez.

The attack broke the door's glass but didn't cause any significant damage inside. When deputies arrived to investigate, the found the "heavy object" smoldering inside the store but nothing else had been burned, Ramirez said.

But because the store is connected to the Kardashians, the media has flocked to the site, he said.

"We've received numerous phone calls, even from overseas," Ramirez chuckled.

This is the first attack on the store Ramirez could think of. Typically, sheriff's deputies are dispatched to the store for crowd control when the Kardashians show up or when there is filming, he said.

The store was the beginning of the Kardashians' retail empire and the West Hollywood opening in 2012 was its fourth location.

Deputies are investigating Monday night's incident as an attempted arson and will canvass the area for any cameras that may have captured the attack, Ramirez said. No arrests have been made.
