Brandon home fire-bombed

BRANDON -- A homemade explosive was tossed at the window of a Brandon home not once but twice over the weekend.

Police say on Dec. 27 and 28, a Molotov cocktail comprised of a gasoline-filled bottle was launched at a home in the 3500 block of Willowdale Crescent.

In each case, the bottle failed to break the window but caused a small fire outside the home.

The fires were quickly put out and no one was injured.

Police continue to investigate.
