Crime scene detectives take photos of the gas can used in the torching of the CityScapes strip club early this morning.

Things at one Maspeth strip club got a little too hot early Thursday morning.

The CityScapes Gentleman’s Club — which a New York Knicks player visited before he was robbed and shot in the knee on Wednesday morning — was hit with two Molotov cocktails at 5:34 a.m. Thursday, authorities said.

Police are searching for two suspects wanted for tossing the fiery concoctions through the club’s windows, setting a fire within the establishment located at 55-60 58th St. Sources familiar with the investigation said the suspects reportedly fled southbound on 58th Street inside a Nissan Altima.

Officers from the 108th Precinct and FDNY units responded to the incident and extinguished the flames.

No injuries were reported and an investigation is ongoing.

The probe also continues into the robbery and shooting of Cleanthony Early, a Knicks bench player whose cab was ambushed on Maurice Avenue near Tyler Avenue early on Wednesday morning moments after he left CityScapes. He was shot in the knee during the incident and is listed in stable condition.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery or the Molotov cocktail attack that could prove helpful is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
