An occupied home was firebombed last night at 10:18 p.m. at Iowa and Oklahoma avenues.
Flint fire Battalion Chief Theresa Root said the home was 60 percent engulfed in flames by the time firefighters arrived. No one was injured in the blaze, but the homeowner lost everything, she said.
Someone likely threw a glass bottle filled with gasoline or another accelerant with a lit wick into the home, starting the blaze, said Root.
Firefighters battled three other vacant structure fires last night, she said.
