Office trailer firebombed no one hurt

March 26, 1996

The State Fire Marshal is investigating Sunday's firebombing of an office trailer near Mount Airy that caused an estimated $2,000 in damage, fire authorities said yesterday.

Investigators said an employee of Mount Bay Home Inc. arrived at work about 11 a.m. and found that over the weekend, someone had thrown a Molotov cocktail through the rear window of the trailer, which was parked at Scotch Heather Avenue and Buffalo Road,

The blaze burned itself out on the carpet, and no one was injured, investigators said.
