IMPD Investigating Arson at Officer's Home /20/2010
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police are investigating the alleged overnight "firebombing" of an officer's home on the city's far south side.
The IMPD officer radioed in to dispatch after someone allegedly threw a "firebomb" or molotov cocktail through a rear window of his house.
The fire has officially been ruled arson.
The officer, his wife and their two children escaped without injuries. But the fire spread from the family's back deck into the home and heavily damaged the roof. Damage is estimated at $100,000.
