3 escape smoky situation in Fort Lauderdale
Something thrown through window sparks fire
A woman, her 2-year-old son and her mother escaped injury Monday morning after someone threw a smoke bomb through a window at their home.
About 6 a.m. Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue responded to the incident at 828 SW 14th St.
Lauren Graham said she was in a back bedroom getting ready for the day when she said she heard a loud boom coming from the front of the house.
Graham said someone threw the bomb through a front window, and it exploded, sending glass flying through the living room. She said the bomb landed a few steps away from her 2-year-old son, Christian, but he was not injured.
"Anyone who would do this is sick. There was a riding toy outside. I hope they get arrested," Graham said.
Moments after the explosion, Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue arrived and blocked off the area as bomb-sniffing dogs checked for clues.
Firefighters say there was moderate smoke damage, but no fire.
"The only thing that saved us is that tint in the windows," she said.
It is still not clear who set off the bomb, but people are questioning several people.
"Whoever did this, I hope they are prosecuted and hope they spend time in prison," Graham said.
