Cochise County Sheriff's deputies are looking for two men who broke into a Sierra Vista home, beat a resident and set the home on fire.

Deputies say the invasion happened at 3:30 a.m. Saturday on East Double B Ranch Road south of Sierra Vista.

The resident said two men -- one who was armed with an assault rifle -- kicked in his front door, then started beating him with a chain. The men made the victim go outside and get down on his knees as they set his home on fire.

The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries. The home was a total loss.

Deputies say the suspects are Hispanic men -- one heavy set and one thin -- who wore dress clothes.

Those with information should call 520-432-9500.
