Detroit Woman Hurt in Firebombing


A 75-year-old woman is hospitalized after her Detroit home was the target of a firebomb Wednesday night.

The woman and three other people were inside a home on Pinehurst Street on Detroit's west side when someone threw a firebomb inside.

The woman was critically injured in the fire, and one firefighter was injured, but is expected to be OK.

Police are investigating. They said there was another incident earlier in the week in which someone threw a firebomb at two homes on the same block.
