Two children were home alone Thursday night when someone threw two Molotov cocktails through windows into their apartment.
A girl, 14, was watching TV in her home in the 1300 South block of 600 East about 10 p.m. when a burning whiskey bottle crashed through the kitchen window, according to a Salt Lake police report.The girl, whose little brother was asleep in a bedroom, picked up the burning bottle with her hands and raced to the bathtub with it.
After attempting to douse the fire with flour, she enlisted the help of a neighbor, who extinguished the bomb.
A second firebomb had been thrown through another window but had apparently extinguished itself on impact.
The bombs were filled with what appeared to be gasoline, according to the report.
The girl's mother said she knew of no reason for the attack.
